MEDICO is a nonprofit volunteer humanitarian organization that has been providing free medical, dental and optometric services to people living at the poverty level in remote areas of Central America, since 1990. Seven to eight one-week mission teams are scheduled each year to Honduras and Nicaragua. Teams include both medical professionals as well as lay volunteers, each paying their own way to participate on a team. MEDICO partners with in-country host organizations that provide important logistic support. Other initatives provided by MEDICO include water and sanitation projects, dental fluoride programs for elementary schools, stove projects, student sponsorships, community health education training, and Adopt.A.Village and Adopt.A.Hospital Initatives that provide long-term support and sustainability.
