  30. 30. Study Limitations This report is based in the patients who attend to our free health camp. So we cannot say they are representative of overall population. Morever database was fill based on a medical files written for all of us. It was not fill prospectively. For this reason, it can be some hazard situations as tireness, emotional status or others that can influence the way in wich medical files were fill. Nevertheless , we believe this study bring to us a clear vision about the health needs in this population
  31. 31. Discusion The majority of problems found were cronical ones. Only one patient was sent emergently to the next hospital ( postpuerperal infection ) The fact that almost 50% of adult population have locomotor problems , lets to reflect us that it is mandatory change some postural and several working habits. But for this , it is necessary bring to this population some tools to facilitate this change. Locomotors disorders (mainly back pain) are not a serious disorder, but it decrease quality of life because pain. Teaching some phisioterapic tips and tricks, and providing tools to carry hard loads , can improve their quality of life. Probably digestive problems are mainly related with how they prepare foods . “ Piro” (spicy) foods are perhaps too much present in the meals of this population .
  32. 32. Discusion Dermatological problems are present in 20% of total adult population and ginecological ones in around 20% of women. Both problems can be prevented with higienical educational teachings for both men and women. Respiratory disease can be prevented partially with smoke cessation, but we are not sure if other environemental factors can play a role. Interestingly we diagnosed cataracts in 5,1% of population (38 patients) . This is a kind of blindness than can absolutely be resolved if a proper treatment (surgery) is applied.
  33. 33. Discusion Concerning children population we saw that hygienic educational programs can solve too a lot of problems. 23% of them had dermatological diseases and almost 14% had odontologic ones. Both can be prevented with adequate profilaxis. Otorrinolaringological and respiratory disorders were present in around 17% . Probably teaching some paramedic persons ,the majority of non severe cases can be resolved in a satisfactory way.
  34. 34. Conclusion We saw that despite majority of patients seemed happy with their life, the population had several problems that can be almost avoided if regular educational teachings, with adequate follow up, were implemented . The majority of problems are not severe and nurses or even paramedical persons can be trained in order to ameliorate the majority of their problems.
