remote Honduran village

On our trip to Honduras in October 2004, we met with leaders, community members, and residents of the several villages in the area of our site. These meetings provided us with insights and opportunities to begin creating the infrastructure essential to implementing our vision and future plans. The most important aspects of this trip were the cooperation and participation of the local people in the planning, decision-making, and building the foundation of a network to meet the healthcare needs of the community. Read the Fall 2014 Trip Report for further highlights, successes/challenges, and future plans. Also important is our Honduran San Jose Survey, which still forms the basis of our plans for a comprehensive community health approach to this site.

 

Here are the reports from our most recent trips to Honduras:
