Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Puerto Rico Covid-19 Project Film
"In Puerto Rico, as in much of the world, COVID-19 is compounding the risks facing vulnerable groups. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams here worked with community-based organizations and local health providers to offer medical aid to those who need help the most. Our services included home-based primary care as well as monitoring for COVID-positive patients. At the end of September, MSF handed over medical activities to Puerto Rico Salud (PRS), a local organization formed by four members of our team seeking to carry on this vital work. Rolando Betancourt, who worked with MSF as a nurse and is a cofounder of the new organization, says working with MSF made him more aware of the medical needs among poor and marginalized communities. “We set out to find a way to continue the same work as Doctors Without Borders,” says Betancourt. “Who better than the same staff … who are already trained, and who know the quality of service required?” To find out more about Puerto Rico Salud, visit puertoricosalud.org/page/about-us"
