Care Continuum

We collaborate from the village level through to the office of the Administrative Director of Health Services with the common goal of better health outcomes.

Health Advocacy

We advocate for improved health through our community education programs and materials.

Physical Therapy

Using instruction with a specifically designed exercise program, our focus is on prevention. Our therapists treat chronic conditions/provide post-op follow up when necessary.

Women's Health

Education, prevention, support and resources such as prenatal vitamins are helping us to make a real difference today, and healthier pregnancies for future generations.

Dental Care

Nearly all the school age children in the region have been treated with fluoride. Professional dental work is also provided at our clinics. We provide hundreds of people with brand new smiles.

Dermatology

Diseases, ailments, and infections of the skin are common in poverty-stricken areas, but care is not. Our dermatologist runs a very busy clinic and is one of our most in-demand specialties.

Ophthamology

While our focus is on eye health education, we’ve set our sights on screening, testing and offering eye-care for everyone in the region. How amazing is that?

Hospice Care

End of life and compassionate care can be offered in the final days of an individual’s life

Our Model

We collaborate with Honduran practitioners to deliver world-class health care and education in the villages of Opatoro and Santa Ana Regions. We are the only NGO offering health services in this region.

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

Definitive Care
