“Each step in this history belongs to us all. To the man or woman who approaches CETRAM with the hope of change, and along that path who understands that it is the responsibility of us all.” Daniela ALBURQUERQUE
CETRAM has an interdisciplinary team that identifies and finds solutions to those problems in regard to the health system that violate the fundamental rights of people involved in the process. CETRAM is looking for social change and advocates for the improvement of health care quality. The process of rehabilitation is adjusted to the needs and requirements of each user. Training is provided to empower the beneficiaries and their families in the use and implementation of new devices; in creating customary practices; in building new devices at low cost.
General social programs to re-establish health usually only involve drug therapy or functionalist therapeutic strategies. CETRAM aims to include educational and technological assistance as well as social, analytical and political elements.
