Over the past 60 years, Project HOPE has been unyielding in our dedication to develop essential health services for vulnerable populations around the world. As a global organization with staff, technical experts, partners, and volunteers on a mission to increase local capacity and access to health care services for communities in need, we strive to make each year better than the next, delivering expert care when and where it’s needed.
In 2017, Project HOPE had programs in nearly 30 countries, addressing the greatest health care challenges, including infectious and chronic diseases, disaster and health crises, and maternal, neonatal and child health. Reaching nearly 2.3 million people with lifesaving health programs, we worked side-by-side with local partners to improve the knowledge and skills of the health workforce and build sustainable health systems.
In Sierra Leone, HOPE volunteers introduced lifesaving Kangaroo Mother Care for premature newborns. In Malawi, we helped patients with a high risk of HIV complete referrals for related services. In South Africa, patients have achieved control of their hypertension and diabetes thanks to Project HOPE’s programs. And when disasters hit, Project HOPE was there providing emergency and ongoing support.
And that’s just the beginning. Every day, Project HOPE makes an impact in local communities, playing a vital role in delivering HOPE to those need it most. Our 2017 Impact Report provides a snapshot of the lifesaving work you help make possible, and we’re excited to share it with you.
