Developing a foundation of knowledge
The purpose of the project in Honduras is to train local resources in homeopathy, homeoprophylaxis and prevention, to bolster their community health interventions, in particular those related to Chagas disease. Homéopathes de Terre Sans Frontières will focus on four municipalities located in the centre of the country and will work with Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH) professors and students, as well as community health promoters.
The project also entails the creation of a laboratory to manufacture homeopathic remedies, as well as the set-up and supply of homeopathic dispensaries.
It is expected that the project will have an impact on close to 36,000 people over the next five years.
