Support Our Internal & External Clinic
NPH Honduras - Healthcare (#P-HON-18002)

In Honduras, the quality of public medical care is deficient and the majority of public health centers lack basic medical supplies. In addition, an estimated 15% of the population does not have access to health services at all. At our home the closest reliable hospital is located about 45 minutes from our home. Having quality and affordable healthcare for the children and the local community on our property is an indispensable resource.

Internal clinic When a child arrives at NPH Honduras a complete medical check-up is given by the local doctor including a physical exam, visual test and laboratories. Immunizations are actualized and a PPD test to rule out tuberculosis is applied.

At our internal clinic, we attend to the general health care of all our children as well as the needs of our onsite employees and volunteers.

External Clinic At our external clinic, which operates weekdays just inside our main gate, we are able to offer care to patients in our local communities. The dental clinic serves the children and dedicates one day a week to people from the surrounding community. In addition, once a month smear tests are performed and every 2 months the external clinic organizes the Hypertension and Diabetes Club gatherings.

The prices of a consultation, medicine, and laboratory tests are subsidized and symbolic. For example, a consultation costs 30 lempiras (US$1.30).

In the external clinic, the majority of patients are women, and around 20% are children. The most common complaints are: diabetes, hypertension, respiratory problems, gastritis and common colds/flu and childhood illnesses.

Our internal and external clinics are a valuable resource for the kids, employees, and volunteers on our property and to local communities around us. Access to emergency treatments, medications for diseases like HIV, and medical images such as x-rays are just a few examples of the services provided. Thanks to the support of our donors we are able to offer quality and affordable treatments, which our patients would not have access to otherwise.
