Honduras: Medical Teams Work Hand in Hand
By Dialogo January 01, 2012
Honduran surgeons and their U.S. counterparts have worked side by side for
years bringing medical assistance to the people of Comayagua, Honduras.
In October 2011, Joint Task Force-Bravo Medical Element and Honduran surgeons
completed highly needed surgeries in local hospitals. The six-person Joint Mobile
Surgical Team worked together three times a week, averaging between two to five
surgeries a day.
“We’ve being doing this for 18 years and I’ve been on hundreds of these
trips,” said Dr. Wilmer Amador, Joint Task Force-Bravo medical liaison officer.
“It’s a win-win for everybody.”
The JTF-Bravo Medical Element also supports military missions and
humanitarian assistance and provides lifesaving surgical capability at Soto Cano Air
