Our work in Nicaragua was delayed by the internal conflict which erupted across Nicaragua in April 2018 and then further delayed by the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic.
We met with the leadership of Nicaragua Global Health Project in Los Angeles in September 2019 to develop a plan for restarting our radiology development projects. Transport and customs clearance has been prepared by NGHP. HRD Corps is now resuming our vendor processes to deploy refurbished Sequoia ultrasound machines to District hospitals. Our initial client site will be in Rivas which will receive 4 Sequoia ultrasounds. This will serve as our pilot engagement site.
We are looking forward to working with NGHP and our colleagues at UCLA to make lasting positive impact to healthcare in Nicaragua.
