GUAMAP - Guatemala Acupuncture and Medical Aid Project
Our mission at GUAMAP What is GUAMAP?

GUAMAP is a traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture training project that uses a “barefoot doctor” model for rural community health care. GUAMAP supports local trained acupuncturists and also sends Spanish-speaking professional acupuncturists from other countries to train local community health promoters in the northern department of Petén, Guatemala. GUAMAP supplies training curriculum for basic and advanced courses, as well as acupuncture needles.
