For a region so rich in culture and cuisine, malnutrition is distressingly high. We are working to change that through food, education and community.

MATERNAL HEALTH

From prenatal vitamins to postpartum depression, mothers and infants are empowered with professional care and support.

DERMATOLOGY

Living in poverty only adds to the skin ailments  that come with the sun. Our medical care covers the spectrum, from prevention to treatment.

From prevention to post-op follow up, our programs cover the physical and mental challenges of chronic conditions. 

 

The Arc of Collaborative Care

Medical and dental teams from both countries work together with regional health services, local practitioners, nurses, health promoters and advocates from each village.

 

CHP-H is unique. We collaborate closely with Honduran doctors, nurses, community leaders and health advocates to ensure a continuity of care that other NGOs do not. Our local volunteer doctors provide follow-up care and medicines, vitamins, fluoride treatments and first aid supplies to regional clinics/hospitals throughout the year, not just during biennial brigades.

We take time to get to know the communities, the people and their home environments, where we can make realistic assessments for a continuum of care with their local nurses and health promoters.

We work with community leaders to understand institutional structures and how to work within them. The local doctors and nurses, health promoters and village advocates, guide us with expert knowledge for providing best practices.

We’re committed to these regions to help improve general health and outcomes with an emphasis on prevention. Our friendships play a very important role for returning team members. Volunteer colleagues from Tegucigalpa, the US and other countries have established strong ties with their rural counterparts.
