MISSION

Guatemala 2016

Highlights
  • Our second mission to Guatemala was immensely important in setting up a “hub” for head and neck care in central America.
  • By establishing ourselves as a returning mission group yearly, we are now able to see patients in follow up year to year as well as triage new patients that present after we leave.
  • Treated hundreds of patients, some with extremely complex and advanced pathology.

Mission details

This year we return to Guatemala after we skipped a year to go to Philippines. Revisiting the same site after one year absence was an eye opening experience that allowed us to conclude that annual visit may result in the faster development of the skills of the local doctors.  It also allowed us to create a program that will assure sustainability of the progress which includes both the donation of more equipment and a 5-year committtement to return there on annual bases.
