Mission:
CHP-Honduras was created to facilitate a more collaborative and community-based model of health care delivery with an arc of sustainability. CHP-Honduras works side-by-side with the regional health care promoters, doctors and dentists and elected community volunteers. We are integrated with local and regional health services with additional support from the municipalities.
   
   Our model incorporates the highest level of medical and dental care and is delivered in concert with the local resources who share their local knowledge of the population as well as the needs and resources of the respective communities. Education and prevention are key components of improving the health of the communities and it is with their participation and partnership that we can make a difference. We strive to create alliances with existing and international resources towards a continuum of care and education.
   This model is symbiotic. Our practitioners learn as much as they impart during our time there. The panoply of experience and knowledge our practitioners bring is augmented by the insights of local professionals. Our teams stay in the heart of the community and our shared cultural experience has become a very important aspect of our continuing effort with our community partners.
