Start of activities
In the Ponticelli district, free basic medical services and guidance to facilitate access to the healthcare system.
Our Outpatient Clinics offer free basic and specialist medical services and socio-sanitary assistance to facilitate access to the healthcare system to those who need it.
Cultural mediators inform patients about their rights, help them access the public health service, accompany them in case they have to undergo visits or specialist examinations at public facilities, deal with the documents for issuing STP codes (Temporarily Present Foreigner) and ENI (non registered European citizens), guaranteeing access to the public health service for foreigners and EU citizens.
A nursing clinic for injections, check ups, therapy monitoring, and medication is also available at the outpatient clinic in Naples.
The building that houses the EMERGENCY outpatient clinic was made available by the City of Naples; we have restored it and equipped it thanks to the contribution of the Tavola Valdese and to the funds collected via the SMS campaign “Health is everyone’s right”.
Street Unit for Homeless People
Since January 2018, a street unit for homeless people is active in Naples. After distributing a hot drink, our staff inform people about the services offered at the Ponticelli Clinic, including a free shuttle service to reach the facility.
The street unit conducts two evening outings a week, covering different areas of the city populated by homeless people. Among these locations are the Central Station, the Archaelogical Museum, Gianturco, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Mergellina Station, the port, Galleria Umberto I and Piazza del Plebiscito.
The areas we visit vary based on the needs observed by other organisations active in the city that we are in contact with. These organisations work to distribute meals and blankets.
