Coanil, wich has worked for people with intellectual disabilities since 1974, becomes now a space for participation and coordination in studies carried out together with MICARE.
On the other hand, the Institute will commit to guide and deliver relevant results to the care of people with intellectual disabilities; among other agreements.
The agreement was signed at the “Los Jazmines” Residence in La Reina by Claudia Miranda, director of MICARE, and Nicolás Fehlandt, general manager of COANIL; who were also able to share with residents and workers of the institution.
Patricia Maturana, Residence Manager, and Felipe Arteaga, President of the COANIL Board of Directors, also participated in the encounter.
“We hope that this joint work has implications that allow improving the quality of life of the users and those who work in the foundation”, she added.
“We are convinced that with quality research we can generate relevant inputs to strengthen the design of public matters, with a view to the attention and care of people with intellectual disabilities”, concluded the COANIL manager.
