What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

At Project HOPE, we envision a world where everyone has the health care needed to reach life's full potential. We know the best way to accomplish this vision is by enabling health workers to have the greatest positive impact on the health of the people they serve.

Infectious Diseases

How We Help Fight Infectious Disease
For more than 60 years, Project HOPE has worked to strengthen health systems and reduce the risk and burden of the world’s deadliest infectious diseases like TB, HIV/AIDS, and now COVID-19.

We prioritize:
Reaching at-risk populations
Increasing case finding and detection
Expanding access to quality care, treatment, and support services
Improving adherence to treatment
Our approaches are always tailored to meet the specific needs of the countries and communities where we work — from Africa to Asia and beyond.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Project HOPE has worked to save the lives of women and babies around the world since 1985. Our strategic priority is to achieve a global community where no woman or newborn risks dying from preventable causes. That’s why we’re working every day to improve access to quality care, build the skills of health care workers, and expand community support in places where mothers and infants need it most.

Whether training midwives in Indonesia, equipping hospitals in the Dominican Republic, or launching mother care groups in Sierra Leone, Project HOPE plays a vital role in the global mission to give all mothers and babies a healthy future.

Infants and toddlers

For more than 15 years, Project HOPE has implemented successful NCD programs in China, Egypt, India, Mexico, New Mexico, and South Africa and recently expanded to the United Arab Emirates and Puerto Rico. Our programs are tailored to meet country-specific needs and include approaches such as:

Increasing the capacity of health professionals at all levels through evidence-based education models and innovative online learning tools.
Improving patient self-management of NCDs through evidence-based models.
Engaging peers, family members, and the community to encourage healthy lifestyles through health education and community-based screenings.
Coordinating with local governments and partners on new health policies to improve the prevention, detection, management, and treatment of NCDs.
Increasing access to essential equipment and medicines.

Project HOPE also has experience establishing cadres of community-based health educators, implementing work, and school-based wellness programs and helping to strengthen cold chain capacity for delivery of NCD medicine such as insulin.

Population(s) Served

When disaster strikes, HOPE is there.
Violent conflict. Deadly disease outbreaks. Record-breaking storms.

While their origins may vary, the result is the same: the health of millions of families is on the line.

We are up against a scale of suffering that cannot be ignored. As the world’s crises compound, its poorest countries bear the cost: hospitals and clinics underequipped, communities underprepared, families unable to go without food, clean water, or medicine.

We’re building a different world — a global community of health workers who have the skills they need to heal people. Hospitals and clinics that won’t be shaken by disaster. Families that have access to incredible advancements in technology and medicine.

Project HOPE has responded to every major disaster since the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Throughout our history, we’ve shown up on the front lines of the world’s most urgent natural disasters and humanitarian crises: from Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, to Cyclone Idai in Mozambique, to the Venezuela crisis, to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We deploy staff and volunteers to provide critical medical support. We deliver lifesaving medicine and relief. And we stay long after the headlines fade to help health systems rebuild.

Health Affairs, the leading journal of health policy thought and research, is published by Project HOPE. The peer-reviewed journal appears monthly in print and online, with additional online articles frequently appearing online ahead of print. Published since 1981, The Washington Post, has called Health Affairs the bible of health policy.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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 2020, we implemented global health and emergency response programs in over 20 countries and responded to COVID-19 in more than 150 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.

In 2020, Project HOPE partnered with local organizations to train more than 116,000 health care workers, reached more than 1.4 million people with lifesaving health programs, and delivered $52.6 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.
