Healthy Communities in Peru

By Rocío Cuenca

Team for Healthy Communities of Special Olympics Peru

On March 5, our first meeting was held with the team that will implement the program in Special Olympics Peru, Healthy Communities. So far, Special Olympics Peru has the support and commitment of CONADIS, Health Care services, Municipalities, the South University of Science and the Universidad San Martin de Porras. The initiative is to broaden the scope of the Healthy Athletes program that has improved the health of the athletes of Special Olympics for over 15 years. In Peru in the first stage, we will put a special emphasis on the area of dentistry for which we already have trained professionals in the care and treatment for people with intellectual disabilities who will share their knowledge and experiences with new professional groups to provide better care for our population.
