Uruguay - Mid-Year Report - MAAUY001
This report covers the period 01 January 2012 to 30 June 2012.
Overview The internal crisis which affected the Uruguayan Red Cross (IURC) during 2011 and which prevented the implementation of several activities has come to an end; however, the National Society has not achieved sufficient organic and financial stability to allow it to carry out the plans that were formulated 2012, despite the efforts that the URC leadership has made and the support of the IFRC and the ICRC. The absence of a strategic plan and the lack of a stable management structure continue to work against National Society progress.
The most important progress is linked to the preparation of volunteers to work in the area of CBHFA focusing on work in the branches. There has been revitalization of the central polyclinic that provides services to vulnerable people and the creation of a mobile polyclinic that travels to areas that have less access to public health services, focusing mainly on disease prevention and health promotion.
