Abstract

Introduction: The medical health care brigades are a strategy to address the health problems of communities from a perspective of social construction, in which people are recognized as subjects of rights and key actors in the process of building with solid foundations through the establishment of strategic alliances with companies committed to corporate social responsibility that allow the strengthening of governance processes to develop a culture of quality that promotes the sustained improvement of the provision of health services.
Methods: This study has a cross-sectional and descriptive approach, from the registration of a database in Excel with the total number of attendances and anonymized data of the direct beneficiaries of the project.
Results: A total of 915 residents of the communities of Tabete, La Victoria, Timbre Commune, Tatica and Cantonal Seat of the San Mateo parish of the city and province of Esmeraldas benefited, achieving a total of 1059 visits in general or family medicine, obstetrics and dentistry, from which the 10 main morbidities of the beneficiaries were obtained, the most prevalent being intestinal parasitosis without other specification with 60%. atopic dermatitis with 25% and acute vaginitis with 21%. Primary essential hypertension, acute rhinopharyngitis, type 2 diabetes mellitus with other specified complications, urinary tract infection of unspecified site, acute tonsillitis and other gastroenteritis and colitis of infectious origin account for less than 10% each.
Conclusions: Corporate social responsibility strategies through medical brigades are a mechanism to highlight and reaffirm the concept of improving health care gaps, which allows the participation of the community in health promotion and prevention and minimizes the occurrence of chronic non-communicable and communicable diseases and their sequelae.
