Our programs and professionals made tangible strides in building health capacity across the globe in 2016. Our volunteers inspired health workers every day in hospitals and clinics that serve the most vulnerable patients – newborns and their mothers.In Sierra Leone, HOPE volunteers shared lifesaving skills in neo-natal and maternal care with local nurses whose determination is matched only by our drive to improve the quality of health care in a place of great need.
When Haiti plunged back into crisis after Hurricane Matthew struck, threatening to undo the country’s hard work in rebuilding after the 2010 earthquake, HOPE medical volunteers rushed to support doctors and nurses at St. Therese Hospital in Nippes.
In Central Asia our teams were at the forefront of amazing innovations in TB detection and treatment, giving Project HOPE a voice at international forums.
In Africa, we were on the frontlines, improving treatment for people living with HIV and are fiercely determined to work with partners seeking to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
In Europe, HOPE was there for thousands of people trapped in the migration crisis in Macedonia, in need of medicines and health care.
And closer to home, I was thrilled to see the Health Affairs journal, published by Project HOPE, expand its coverage of global health this year. I’m confident the journal will continue to be a crucial platform for the nation’s leading policy experts as a new administration takes office next month.
The global health challenges that await us in 2017 are enormous indeed. With a deeply dedicated staff at our headquarters in Virginia and offices around the world as well as the goodwill of our volunteers and continuing support of our dedicated supporters, we are poised to live up to our mission with even greater impact in 2017!
