By Aaron Humes: Residents of the Corozal District in need of basic surgery this week enjoyed a visit from American military surgeons based in Honduras.
The United States Embassy in Belize announced that the team, bedded with Joint Task Force Bravo at Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras, visited the Corozal Town Community Hospital on August 3 to 5 as part of U.S. Southern Command’s Global Health Engagements initiative to perform these free procedures alongside Belizean physicians from the Ministry of Health, helping to alleviate the northern region’s backlog of scheduled procedures.
The team led by Colonel Steven Gventner completed 20 surgical procedures over a four-day period.
Medical and surgical missions with partner nations increase JTF-Bravo’s expeditionary capabilities as well as the regional capacities to respond to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief events together.
This is an opportunity to strengthen ties with Belize while validating the Task Force’s tactical and clinical capabilities to deploy and perform quality care in a limited resource environment.
Bravo has successfully conducted medical and surgical missions throughout Central America for almost 40 years.
