Primary care in the Nueva Capital district of Honduras
The Fundación del Valle and the Collaboration and Effort Association (Asociación Colaboracion y Esfuerzo; ACOES) are launching a project aimed at bolstering primary health care in the Nueva Capital area of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Access to health systems remains deficient for the general population. 46.6% of rural communities lack health centres or medical brigades.
To achieve this, medical equipment, medicines and materials will be purchased and installed at the clinic, and the team of doctors and dentists from universities will be expanded. Another of the activities that will be carried out is the organization and holding of training days by 10 health promoters/agents, making possible a health training and preventive care campaign in the long term. There will also be awareness-raising workshops on preventive health habits, and house calls in Nueva Capital made by health agents.
The execution of the complete programme is slated for July 15, 2017 to July 14, 2018.
The indirect beneficiaries are 25,000 people from the general population across the rest of the settlement, insofar as it contributes to the improvement of the health system.
