Health brigade members of the FMC are in advance
The Municipal Directorate of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) in Baracoa materializes a systematic work based on health for a better quality of life for its members and the family in general.
More than 500 health brigades linked to the FMC in the territory prioritize the sanitation of areas to prevent the appearance of Aedes Aegipty foci, increase actions that raise the perception of the risk of getting diseases caused by the aforementioned vector, as well as the responsibility of families in cleaning homes and the community.
For the feminine organization it is also vital the promotion of educative actions with the families so that they contribute to the preparation of the adolescents and that they assume a responsible sexuality, as a way to avoid sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies.
It is also outstanding the work linked to the staff of the family doctor´s offices in order to inform about the importance of vaginal cytology and self-examination of breasts, both are cancer preventives.
The emphasis in these tasks responds to an agreement of the Tenth Congress of the FMC, held last March.
