NDI is an American based organisation with an established project in Nicaragua on the Island of Ometepe.
Partnership commenced with OHO in 2011 when NDI representatives expressed interest in OHO’s Holistic Primary Health Care (HPHC) model. Dr Tabatha Parker, NDI Director, has since formally implemented HPHC as the organisations guiding healthcare policy, calling it “the most thorough, cutting edge policy on the planet”. OHO has also commenced sending international aid packages to the Nicaraguan project, and has also created small micro-finance grants to support their work.Since 2005, the NDI naturopathic clinic has provided over 15,000 patients with free health care services by volunteer naturopathic physicians. They have secured nearly $500,000 USD of medicines for distribution in the community. OHO is currently supporting NDI’s bid to gain UN association and has formally agreed to collaborate on all future international advocacy issues.
