Since MEDICO's founding in 1990, our mission has been to improve the quality of life of Central Americans by providing a sustainable healthcare response to underserved communities. We exist to serve in 3 main ways:
We partner with community leaders, local healthcare members, and US healthcare members to mobilize short-term medical teams that provide primary and acute care to the remote community members to which we serve.
We implement educational programs throughout our stay in each location to promote sustainable health changes because we believe knowledge is power.
We connect with local construction teams to fund both materials and labor to reconstruct and build structures that fit the needs of the community whether that be a clinic, water well, or school.
