The Cuban medical brigade arrived in Honduras in November, 1998, as part of the Cuban assistance given to the countries of Central America as a result of hurricane Mitch. They worked under very difficult conditions in the most western and poorest zone of the country. 7 departments, 58 municipalities and 193 communities were visited. The brigade was divided into 2 groups: one that worked in the hospitals and the other that visited different communities by truck, on muleback and many times on foot. 92 9l9 patients were attended: 79 301 by the mobile brigade and 13 618 at the hospitals. The main health problems were: acute respiratory diseases, intestinal parasitism and alterations of the osteomioarticular system. 811 major surgeries and 593 minor surgeries were performed. 4 350 houses were visited, 1 047 health audiences were made, 22 935 educative talks were offered and 677 417 nursing actions were reported
