Nurses shape the future
Nurses, Doctors, Counselors—Everyone’s a Part of the Team in Guatemala
In the Western Highlands of Guatemala, nurses, doctors, counselors and community health workers form the backbone of a primary health care workforce bringing high-quality services to families in remote, hard-to-reach communities—improving care from before conception, to the day of birth, to a child’s fifth birthday and beyond.
MCSP supported the government of Guatemala to provide health care workers with training, mentorship and supervision to improve the quality of reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent health and nutrition. In the process, Guatemala is building resilient, accountable and responsive health care systems that reach more families than ever before.
