Mientras el Covid-19 se expande por todo el hemisferio norte, países sin recursos económicos ni sanitarios como Malawi viven aterrorizados ante la amenaza de la pandemia.
Desde DerMalawi y en colaboración con Misiones Médicas España y la Comunidad Misionera San Pablo Apóstol, lanzamos la campaña *#MASK FOR LIFE MALAWI* en apoyo a la población autóctona de la región de Benga, de una de las zonas más pobres del país.
Queremos, de forma *URGENTE* , dotar a la población de la formación y los recursos necesarios para que puedan fabricar mascarillas para todos, para que unido al resto de las medidas de higiene logremos frenar a tiempo la diseminación de la enfermedad.
¡ *AYÚDANOS a evitar la Catástrofe por Covid19 en Malawi! ¡Ahora estamos a tiempo!**
Gracias, ya estamos en ello! tu colaboración es muy importante.

DERMATOLOGIC PROJECT IN MALAWI LOCATION: NKHOTAKOTA DISTRICT. BENGA PARISH. MALAWI
DURATION OF THE CAMP: From 25 of October 2019 to 3 of November 2019 (10 days)
SERVICES DEVELOPED: Since 2015, Spanish dermatologists have been assisting the population
of Nkhotakota district in 8 different trips, led by Dr. Cristina Galvan. In the beginning, Benga
Parish members alerted about general dermatological problems, which caused the firsts
camps. Lately, a scabies epidemic outbreak made us to increase our efforts, increase the
number of volunteers and time in the field. All those work, let us to know the real situation of
dermatologic problems in the area. It was concerning, to check so many dermatologic
problems that we couldn’t solve. Part of them were related to surgical problems. Specially in
albino community, with important skin tumors. Some of them with fatal outcomes. This
situation moved us to develop a first dermatologic surgery project, that was done successfully
between July and August 2019. In order to continue our works, helping people with
dermatological diseases, we are planning to return to Benga in groups of 5 dermatologists
every 3-6 months. A team composed by 5 doctors specialized in dermatology and 1 specialist
in microbiology will be attending people with skin diseases for 10 days (except on Sunday) in
Alinafe, Thavite, Makhioni hospitals. This is the first time that we have a specialist in
microbiology in our team, the reason for this incorporation is to try to have a more accurate
diagnosis in infectious pathology that abounds in the area. For us, is mandatory a good follow
up of every patient. We will work side by side with local personal, to teach them to do a good
management, transferring skills to assist basic cases in the future. We are in permanent
contact with them across the teledermatology line open via Watsapp with 47 international
dermatologists online. All the samples biopsies obtained during our stay will be analyzed by a
prestigious Spanish pathology team, with our commitment to inform before 3 weeks, via
email, to the reference medical officer. Finally, a reported of our project will be submitted to
the Council and the Ministry of Health within two weeks with details of achievements, number
of persons served, any challenges encountered and a follow up plan.
