WPP has been actively working in Honduras since 2002. Honduras’ existing pediatric health care system is more robust than other WPP partner nations, yet many gaps in access remain. WPP’s current partnership programs focus on increasing access to care and building local capacity in the areas of complex orthopedics, neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, and plastic/craniofacial surgery.
