TOTAL HEALTH WEBSITE

MISSION: Total Health is a U.S. based organization that is committed to providing high quality, consistent and reliable medical care in Central America. In short, we want to provide primary care medicine to people who have never had it before. Through disease prevention and early treatment we can dramatically change the health of the people we serve. This is being done by funding the salaries of key positions, supplying medications on a consistent basis, expanding diagnostic capabilities like x-ray and laboratory equipment, and sending medical teams from the US to help provide care.

HEALTH CARE, EMOTIONAL CARE AND SPIRITUAL CARE TO THOSE IN NEED

Total Health has been providing low cost, high quality health care to the very poor in Central America since 2004. We now have clinics in La Ceiba, Honduras, Managua, Nicaragua and Guayabo, El Salvador.  Working through partnerships with local churches, we are combining affordable health care, housing and education with spiritual and emotion care to provide true“Total Health."  This has proven to be a very effective way to help break the cycle of poverty and improve the lives of the people we serve.
