Peru: Workshop for blood testing

Our health professionals recently participated in a training session organised by the Cusco Regional Health Authority. They practised how to carry out blood tests in a professional manner in order to correctly identify anaemia in the children of the remote rural communities of Cusco, Puno and Apurímac. Now they are well equipped to fight anaemia in the 7 municipalities where we work. Fighting anaemia is important because many children still suffer from it, which harms their healthy mental and physical development.
