In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Health of Peru faces the challenge of ensuring the continuity of comprehensive health care for girls and boys at the first level of care. Considering the reality imposed by the pandemic, there is a need to adapt the provision of health services from a fixed offer to a telehealth offer to minimize the risks of contagion.
This adapted form of comprehensive care should contain procedures that assess the health, nutrition, and development conditions of girls and boys, in order to detect risks and provide guidelines to promote their growth and the achievement of development skills.
This webinar presented the progress and challenges of Peru and the experiences of Colombia and Kyrgyzstan in the application of telehealth in comprehensive care services for girls and boys in the context of the health crisis.
