"There is a time they call adolescence..." Supporting Healthy Youth Development in Rural Honduras: A Community Perspective

by Martha Kubik, Associate Professor, School of Nursing

Honduras is among the poorest countries in the western hemisphere. With a large population of young people, many who are poor and live in rural areas, youth wellbeing is closely linked to population health and economic stability. However, attention to the  needs of young people has been lacking, particularly in rural areas. Dr. Martha Kubik, a professor in the School of Nursing and director of the school’s international programming, discussed the results of a comprehensive youth-focused formative assessment conducted in 2010-2011 that engaged parents, youth, and local community leaders from seven villages in a rural municipality of western Honduras. This work was done as part of an ongoing collaboration with local partner, Asociacion Hombro a Hombro, with the support of the Honduran Ministry of Health.
