Facultar


Explanation:
Su misión es motivar y facultar a la comunidad latina para crear e implementar técnicas educación de la salud y prevención de enfermedades de alta calidad y adecuadas a las diferentes culturas, desarrollando de esta forma su potencial de liderazgo.

The correct translation of the word "empower" has been the subject of much debate, mostly addressing its use on Human Resource issues. The general consensus among interpreters and translators (as well as Human Resources specialists) has been that the word that best conveys the meaning behind the word is "facultar". On page 944, the Diccionario de la Lengua Española states that Facultar is "conceder facultades a uno para hacer lo que sin tal requisito no podría."

I hope it helps,

Explanation:
Su mision es a motivar y autorizar a la comunidad Latina a crear e implementar educacion sobre la salud y prevencion de enfermedades culturalmente distintos y de calidades superiores - asi desarrollando su potencia dirigente.

The sentence had to be rearranged to make sense in Spanish - also I didn't switch my machine over so you'll want to add the accents.
(mision - educacion - prevencion - asi)

Ojala que te sirva! Suerte!
