About 40 health professionals were trained until this Wednesday (12) to perform a clinical evaluation in the population exposed to lead contamination in Adrianople (PR), in the Ribeira Valley. The county Department of Health estimates that the first phase of the evaluation, 700 residents of the towns of Vila Mota Chapel and will be attended by a nearby resident who miner, for five decades, worked in the processing and refining of the ores of lead.

This is the first time that a particular job is done to care for this population. The university has been researching the contamination of the region long ago, however, with little return healthcare to the community, explains the director of the Metropolitan Regional Health, José Carlos Abreu.

The State Health Department met the family health teams (community health workers, nursing technicians, nurses, dentists and doctors) to talk about the importance of incorporating the routine evaluation of patients undergoing chronic poisoning by lead, one that happens after years of exposure. The risk of acute infection has passed since the mining activities ceased in the 90s. However, there is still a concern for people who are exposed to lead waste remaining in the environment, emphasizes Abreu.

On October 17, a public hearing will be held with the residents of the Village Chapel Mota and to report on the survey to be conducted by health teams. First will be assessed residing 500 meters from the mine, extending this ray until all residents are met.
