In 2010, The Holy Family Surgery Center and the Center for Social Concerns formed a partnership to create the Global Health in Honduras Seminar. The seminar course offers Notre Dame students the opportunity to see first-hand how different forces can influence healthcare delivery, gain hands-on medical experience observing surgery outreach and assisting with patient in-take, and understand the role of Catholic Social Teaching in addressing global health and the complex social forces that affect it. Through class lectures, discussions, and readings, students examine the health of populations in a global context.

In 2006 the Red Cross started a project called Redes, which means "networks" in Spanish, to support an integrated community health approach. A key component of this project was to encourage men to play an active role in family health care. "At first we thought it would be difficult. We thought people wouldn't be interested in discussing gender issues. The truth was that people were interested," says volunteer Melvin Varela.
In Honduras, Red Cross support helped 12,000 children receive care through a program called Integrated Attention to Children in the Community in remote areas which previously had little or no access to health services. "We have established a system based on volunteers dedicating their time to be trained in family health," says Honduras delegate Elaine Hernandez. Another important objective of the project has been to strengthen the linkages between local health providers, NGOs, government institutions and the Red Cross.
