Improving Healthcare in Honduras


Student taking blood pressure from man in Honduras.

For the past thirteen years, the University of Wyoming has conducted health brigades to Agua Salada, Honduras for the purpose of building a sustainable health care system for its community. Our goal is to provide a unique and valuable cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, service-learning experience for students from the health sciences disciplines and others throughout the UW community.

Our vision is to improve health outcomes among the people in this remote and mountainous region of Honduras by providing primary health care, public health, dental care, nutrition and education. Our efforts are in partnership with Shoulder-to-Shoulder, a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization that is well established in rural Honduras, having provided health care services to western Intibuca since 1990.
