Spring is here! Cape CARES back to Honduras!

Summary

Fully vaccinated volunteers from Cape CARES are actively planning to return to Honduras in October of this year, 2021, and we plan to serve high priority patients from both San Marocs region and El Rodieto. We will extend our service week to see as many patients as possible. We will be implementing international COVID planning guidelines around social distance and masking, triage and isolation of ill patients.

Challenge

One of the major barriers to receiving healthcare in Honduras is lack of access to healthcare providers like doctors, nurses, dentists, and hygienists. The CDC reports that there are approximately 0.37 physicians per 1,000 people and 0.7 dentists per 1,000 people in Honduras. Despite major efforts of international aid groups and the Honduran Ministry of Health, the rural impoverished population remain highly underserved.

Solution

Aligning with the World Health Organization and the local community's goals of increased access to health and dental care, Cape CARES made it their mission to provide high quality community-based care. Over the decades this has included team-centered primary care, medical and dental treatment, preventive care, health education, and training for the local communities using a prolonged engagement primary care model.

Long-Term Impact

These comprehensive services are delivered to the rural communities in and surrounding Los Encinitos, San Marcos, and El Rodieto. Our teams of dedicated volunteers have worked hand in hand with the communities for over 30 years, caring for multiple generations of families and building lifelong partnerships with people from the communities. We plan on returning to Honduras in October 2021, and serving high priority patients. We will extend our service week to see as many patients as possible.
