For many, one of the greatest barriers to improving health is poverty. Simply put, the circumstances into which people are born can dictate their physical well-being for the rest of their lives, unless we can do something to stack the odds in their favor. Low incomes, rudimentary education, long-term unemployment and unreliable health care infrastructures represent exceptionally challenging problems in the developing world. But innovative, sustainable programs linking health to economic empowerment are building stronger communities that are improving both the length and quality of lives. At Project HOPE, a Virginia-based NGO founded over 55 years ago and active in about 35 nations, we are building on years of experience in lowering the barrier to improved health care, including addressing economic constraints and making innovative adaptations to practices in the field.
