Founded in 1958, Project HOPE believe in a universal right to be health and thrive, and we envision a world where everyone has access to the health care needed to reach life’s full potential.

We accomplish our mission by improving the knowledge, abilities and tools of the health workforce to deliver high quality health services to communities in need.

Since 1958, Project HOPE has trained more than one million health care workers, impacting tens of millions of lives. In 2018, we implemented global health and emergency response programs in 29 countries. We partner with both international and local entities – including Ministries of Health, public and private funding agencies, and other NGOs – to provide health care and train health workers in the areas of noncommunicable diseases; infectious diseases; maternal, neonatal, and child health; and disasters and health crises. In addition to program implementation, we further support our global health programs through provided critically needed medicines and medical supplies and expert volunteers.

Project HOPE has a rigorous monitoring and evaluation system to track to the progress and success of our programs. We routinely collect and analyze data to ensure we are achieving our targets and to support proper and accurate data reporting.

In 2018, Project HOPE partnered with local organizations to train 31,018 health care workers, reached nearly 1 million people with lifesaving health programs, and delivered $42.3 million of donated medical supplies, equipment and medicines. We regularly track our impact in our health areas of focus and adjust our goals as needed to ensure alignment with those of the global community.
