This is a Spanish version. AMOS Health and Hope was a Nicaraguan non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in 2007 to empower rural communities to establish their health needs and develop action plans to solve them. It also supported these communities, following up on their plans and providing guidance to execute the actions planned. Dr Laura Chanchien Parajon, AMOS Medical Director and co-founder, was working on a funding application to be submitted to the United States' Agency for International Development (USAID), hoping that it would allow the organization to expand its operations in Nicaragua. AMOS' new project sought to fight diseases transmitted by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, like, Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya. The rate of these diseases among Nicaragua's population showed a growing trend over recent years. Dr Chanchien had scheduled a meeting for the next day with Dr Parajon, the organization's Executive Director, to decide whether they would submit the application or not. Dr Parajon had some qualms about this new project, including whether it would draw AMOS away from its mission and whether the organization had the capabilities required to execute it successfully.
