In selected communities, we have organized integral health programs, which included nutrition, child and family health, environmental protection and basic sanitation. These projects had a duration of one to three years.
We also organized integral health programs in two flower plantations. Part of these programs was the protection of workers and the environment against chemicals and pesticides.
The Honduras Project:
During 1994-95 the President of The Cinterandes Foundation, as a consultant of the Pan-American Health Organization, advised the implementation of the mobile surgery program in Honduras. A group of Honduran physicians and nurses visited our Foundation and a similar program was started in Honduras. Over 1000 patients were successfully operated on.
