The Guatemalan Ministry of Public Health and Social Assistance (MSPAS), through the Integrated Healthcare Services Directorate and the Alta Verapaz Health Area, presented the accomplishments of two months of integrated preventive health and nutrition implementation by mobile brigades in hard-to-reach communities in Alta Verapaz through joint efforts with PAHO and UNICEF.

These brigades prioritized immunization, weight and height monitoring, and other preventive health services that  the vulnerable populations of 15 municipalities did not have access to during the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting was held in Tactic, Alta Verapaz, and attended by health personnel from the mobile brigades, Ministry of Health, UNICEF and PAHO, and the Deputy Chief of Mission from the United States Embassy in Guatemala.
