Today begins a series of posts from UNC students who were to spend the summer working in Honduras with the Honduran Health Alliance (HHA). HHA is a student-run collaborative of organizations and individuals who work together to promote sustainable development in public health with a focus on women’s health education and screening.
HHA activities were halted as a result of the military coup earlier this summer. On June 28, Honduran soldiers exiled President Manuel Zelaya to Costa Rica and the country’s congress named Roberto Micheletti president.
Following the coup, all UNC students were swiftly and safely evacuated. I asked them to reflect on their experiences for the blog.
