World Pediatric Project has been actively working in country of Honduras since 2002. WPP works closely with local physicians and hospital partners throughout Honduras to help close gaps in access to advanced pediatric healthcare services and provide capacity-building and training opportunities to local care providers. Honduras’ existing pediatric health care system is more robust than other WPP partner nations, yet gaps in access still remain.
