HONDURAS: Health System

In Honduras, the total expenditure as % of the GDP is 8.5% (about 400$ per person) being lower than the average for the Americas, so the quality of and access to health care are directly tied to income levels. Poverty is a major issue in Honduras where over 66% of the population lives in poverty with one in five people living in extreme poverty. People with low and middle-income status often lack physical and financial access to health services and the quality of these services can be low. The public hospital infrastructure and health centers are deficient; some centers date from the beginning of the century and require heavy investments in infrastructure and equipment to proved the services in optimal conditions and free of risk.
