About Ahuas Clinic
Mosquitia, the largest wilderness area in Central America, includes a 5,500-square-mile area in eastern Honduras that has been isolated politically, socially, geographically, linguistically, and economically. Many people have never heard the gospel, and the nearest hospital can be 12 or more hours away by canoe.
Ahuas Clinic serves the indigenous Miskito people via an active outpatient service and a public health program that focuses on prenatal care, midwife education, nutrition, vaccination, and HIV detection and prevention. The hospital averages about 10-20 inpatients, and provides obstetrics care and general surgery. The goal is excellent, compassionate care in the context of spiritual support and limited resources.
