Why Guatemala

Health indicators reveal that Guatemala has the most significant differences among Latin American countries between the various population groups with the greatest disparity and challenges among the indigenous, the rural, and the poor.

Access to Healthcare

Guatemala has the highest rate of private expenditure in order to access healthcare than any other Latin American country. This statistic is reflected in the fact that poor, rural Guatemalans must pay cash in order to receive the most basic of health care needs.

Maternal Mortality

Maternal mortality among the indigenous population is 163/100,000 live births (LB), whereas among the non-indigenous population it is 78/100,000 LB.

6 million

Guatemalans are without access to improved sanitation services (ENCOVI, 2014).

37%

of deliveries were attended by a traditional birth attendant rather than a skilled birth attendant (Garces et al, 2019)

We can make a difference

To provide medical care to developing countries requires many hands. Medicine, supplies, and translators all cost money. We've got many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in. There's so much you can do to help out!
