A Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública has just signed a partnership with Salvador City Hall to carry out social training and training actions. To this end, a cooperation agreement was signed in a public ceremony held on January 8, at Casa Pia de São Joaquim, in Calçada. The ceremony, which marked the launch of the Vida Nova package of measures, was attended by the mayor, Bruno Reis, the head of SEMPRE Júnior Magalhães and the superintendent of Institutional Relations at Bahiana, Dr. Diego Menezes, representing the institution, as well as other public sector authorities and managers from other partner institutions. Through an agreement with the Secretariat for Social Promotion, Combating Poverty, Sports and Leisure (SEMPRE), the Bahiana will offer a lato sensu postgraduate course in Social Assistance Management and will carry out the UniversIDADE 60+Ativado project, actions that are part of Vida Nova.
The postgraduate course will offer 300 places for City Hall employees who work with the National Social Assistance Policy (PNAS). The selection process and notice will be published soon by SEMPER. In turn, UniversIDADE 60+Ativado aims to promote the psychosocial reintegration for the full exercise of citizenship of people over 60 years of age, residing in the municipality of Salvador, through carrying out actions aimed at longevity, with quality of life and well-being.
"A Bahiana, over seven decades of existence, has always acted in teaching, health and, also, as a vector of social transformation, especially through extension and assistance actions", declared Diego Menezes, highlighting that the two actions will be developed with the support of ALWAYS and are part of the VIDA NOVA social transformation package, made up of a total of 25 actions aimed at promoting dignity and quality of life for the population of Salvador, in response to the Census of Homeless People in the capital of Bahia presented by secretary Júnior Magalhães at the public ceremony.
