A Health Care Model in Mexico!
In rural Yucatán villages of Mexico, where indigenous Maya live in abject poverty, A Promise of Health has developed an innovative and unique health care model that if replicated across rural Mexico can revolutionize the delivery of medical services for the poor.
Since 2001 until now, A Promise of Health has placed Mexican Homeopathic Doctors in rural Yucatán, serving more than 25 municipalities. During that time, the doctors, who see on average 140 patients each day, have treated an incredible number of patients – more than 65,000. With a portable pharmacy they are not only able to diagnose and prescribe, but also to give villagers needed medicine. All of this at no cost to the patient.
