CHPH Team

 

Teamwork 

We’re a community of nurses, doctors, dentists, educators and aids who work together on both sides of the equator.

We’re the only NGO offering medical and dental services in Honduras’ remote Opatoro and Santa Ana regions. By collaborating with our Honduran counterparts, we are able to deliver a continuum of care.
