The health and medical situation in Honduras varies drastically in
quality and in availability throughout the country. Outside of the major
city of San Pedro Sula and the capital, Tegucigalpa, the only medical
services available throughout the country are insufficient and cannot
accommodate patients for complex situations. The support staff and the
facilities they work in are not up to U.S standards anywhere in Honduras.
Modern facilities for advanced surgical procedures are not available
anywhere in the country. Even general surgery hospitals are very rare
and not even found in the popular tourist areas of the Bay Islands.
Ambulance service is limited to only a few major cities and found nowhere
