Public Health

Trip locations: Honduras, Panama, and Nicaragua

Public Health Brigade volunteers empower under resourced communities in the developing world to decrease life threatening diseases by working alongside community members to improve home infrastructure and providing public health education.

Volunteers will:

  • Improve the overall infrastructure within the home through the construction of four projects: eco-stoves, latrines, water storage units and concrete floors.
  • Educate community members on how to maintain sustainable public healt

The four projects were chosen based on observations of medical brigade patient records, which illustrated high levels of preventable diseases caused by poor in-home health infrastructure.

Between brigades, the in-country team provides follow-up to ensure the maintenance of the structures and work to find funding that will complement the health goals of the community to perpetuate future construction.
