Our actions

HI worked in Honduras between 1999 and 2010. Today, HI's Latin America and the Caribbean program is studying the possibility of relaunching an intervention in Honduras. It is currently managing a two-year consulting contract in the country to support technical assistance activities and identify possibilities of a future intervention. HI is currently providing technical assistance on the inclusion of people with disabilities as part of a project run by a consortium in three of the region's countries: Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Areas of intervention


HI interventions in Honduras

Honduras is experiencing a complex humanitarian crisis due to systemic poverty, deep socio-economic inequalities and widespread violence.

Historically, Honduras has been a country of origin, entry, transit and, to a lesser extent, destination for refugees and migrants. Criminal groups and organizations control the country, and the population is denied access to health, education, employment and the use of public spaces as areas of protection and civic life. In this context, children, adolescents, women and people with disabilities are particularly affected.

The wide range of shocks has reduced availability, quality and access to basic services. The reduction in commercial and economic activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and tropical storms have reduced tax revenues and public investment, disrupted social programs and weakened social safety nets, disrupting economic recovery. In 2022, heavy flooding in September and the aftermath of tropical storm Julia led to many health centers being flooded, often in the same areas as those affected by storms Eta and Iota in 2020, with the loss of medical supplies and equipment.

According to the United Nations Humanitarian Response Plan for 2023, the humanitarian needs analysis conducted in 2021 revealed that 2.8 million people in Honduras were in need of humanitarian aid. This analysis was updated in 2022 and indicated that these needs had been exacerbated by a food crisis, violence, population displacement, climate change and disasters, bringing the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance up to 3.2 million.
