Situation of the Health System in Honduras and the New Proposed Health Model

Lino Carmenate-Milián, Alejandro Herrera-Ramos, Dany Ramos-Cáceres, Kathy Lagos- Ordoñez, Tania Lagos- Ordoñez,Cesar Somoza-Valladares

This article describes the current health system in Honduras including its composition, financing structure, coverage, employment and the impact of the health personnel migration. Likewise, a contrast is made with the profound reforms that are intended to be carried out in Honduras, which includes universal healthcare, increased coverage, and the inclusion of private providers in the new health model; it also involves the separation of roles between buyer and supplier. This last statement has generated controversy between sectors, members and professionals of the health services, which has associated it with the privatization of the health systems.
