UN systematizes Cuba’s experience in maternal health care

Havana, May 27 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) reported on Friday that it systematized Cuba's experiences in maternal health care during the complex moments of the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to an UNFPA news bulletin, one of the main events developed was the reorganization at all levels, and at the primary level, and it included medical offices, polyclinics and the network of maternal homes.

The activity made it possible to detect, evaluate and refer infected patients in a timely manner in order to prevent the evolution of the disease to serious and critical stages, the text underlines.

At the secondary healthcare level, there was an exchange on the updating and implementation of action protocols, which were adapted according to the epidemiological situation at each moment.

The text says that all medical professionals who were to face the pandemic, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, were trained.

Following the circulation of the Delta variant, several hospitals that did not treat pregnant women began to do so and intensive obstetric surveillance was introduced to prevent patients from developing a clinical condition that would require admission to an intensive care unit.
