With fewer than 0.4 physicians per 1,000 people, accessing healthcare in Honduras is difficult indeed. And for those living in poverty (nearly 70% of the population), available services are impossible to afford. So the Brigade sends teams of volunteer healthcare professionals to the Comayagua region, where they deliver life-changing medical care to the poor, including surgeries, rehabilitation services, and eyecare. But immediate relief through direct treatment is only part of the plan. With a mission to to enhance the lives of the poor in Honduras by building sustainable community health solutions, the Brigade also trains workers who provide year-round healthcare to villagers living far away from the nearest hospital. Additional projects – including clean water systems, latrines, and education programs in hygiene, nutrition, and sanitation – impact thousands of lives by building local capacity to prevent disease and fight malnutrition. Join the team, and help generations of Hondurans lead healthier lives.
