Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

The changing epidemiological profile of the populations in Central America with an increase in morbidity from diabetes, heart disease and cancer, poses challenges to the current public health systems. Reducing the burden of chronic disease in a multi-ethnic population also necessitates the need for healthcare practitioners to understand the importance of employing “cultural competence” in treating these diverse populations to provide quality patient care and outcomes.  Addressing these current healthcare needs in Central America has focused on integrating health services and delivery networks to improve access to a continuum of primary care as the best model for disease control and prevention.
