Hillside Health Care International


Since 2000 we’ve been operating a year-round clinic in the Toledo District of southern Belize and all of our services and medications are free for patients. We collaborate with community leaders and organizations, Belizean government ministries, local service organizations, and NGOs. The Toledo District is a richly diverse region that is home to many demographic groups, including Mayan, Garifuna, Mestizo, East Indian, and other cultural groups. Limited resources, differing cultural practices and language barriers pose unique challenges to effective and culturally competent collaboration and patient care


Services we provide:
