Nacional del Progreso Y Escuelade Enfermería


In similar size to neighboring Central American countries, Guatemala continues to increase its overall health expenditure and in 2014 it was 6.2% of the GDP.¹

The momentum built from the training-of-trainers workshop held in February in El Salvador led to participants teaching their colleagues in the neighboring Central American countries. In March 2019, the hospital Nacional del Progreso Y Escuelade Enfermería in Guatemala held a “Safer Surgical Instruments” training for 20 sterilization room technicians and 20 operating room nurses.
