Capacity Building & Medical Training in Honduras
In collaboration with the Honduran Red Cross, Honduran Air force, Comisión Permanente de Contingencias (COPECO), and Hospital Regional Atlantida, Team Rubicon (TR) provided several medical trainings in La Ceiba, Honduras between June 6-18, 2022. The exercise, part of Resolute Sentinel 2022 with US Southern Command, included trauma assessment and management, point of care ultrasound, advance airway in trauma, and other emergency medical procedures. Within the 12 days of the training program, TR provided training for 125 participants, ranging from civilian volunteers to physicians. Honduras is highly vulnerable to the impacts of natural disasters and humanitarian crises, and in rural places, like La Ceiba, extreme poverty and lack of healthcare exacerbate these vulnerabilities. These trainings were essential in providing an immediate impact on the level of care to surrounding communities.
