Mission

A Promise of Health Mission A Promise of Health exists to provide the technical and financial assistance necessary to deliver sustainable, effective, low cost, safe homeopathic healthcare to under served indigenous peoples in rural Mexico.  Our work is currently focused in rural Oaxaca, Mexico. Our innovative, tested and proven homeopathic health care model includes deploying dedicated Mexican doctors to live in the communities they serve. This holistic approach emphasizes preventive medicine and community self-help education. Building on the rich 100 year plus history of Homeopathy in Mexico, this low cost model includes dispensing reliable, safe and effective homeopathic medicines manufactured in Mexico. A Promise of Health promotes and believes that basic everyday healthcare is a fundamental human right, and advances this through partnerships with local municipal governments, community non profit organizations, health care professionals, foundations, schools, churches, individuals and businesses. A Promise of Health advocates a strong US/MX collaboration, and a good neighbor policy that believes in the creed, "Love your neighbor. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Create low cost solutions that work and empower. Actively do the work. Change the world."  With these practices and principles in place, we envision the expansive rural countryside of Mexico as a place of healthy, hopeful communities, increasingly capable of building futures and giving back.

Oaxaca Medicine Wheel

In rural Oaxacan villages whose majority are indigenous Indians, the Mexican homeopathic doctor of A Promise of Health, brings basic healthcare, seeing, on average, 100 patients each week. With an on site homeopathic pharmacy she is not only able to diagnose and prescribe, but also to dispense much needed homeopathic medicine on the spot. All of this is at low to no cost to the patient.
Unique to A Promise of Health is that the doctor lives in the rural community she serves. This is the first time this has ever occurred. Before A Promise of Health came most communities had no affordable, safe or effective medical service.
Today, A Promise of Health serves 22 rural communities from the main health clinic in Ayoquezco de Aldama.
Much work remains to be done to duplicate this proven, successful model for every day rural healthcare, across rural Mexico.
