Diabetes is an emerging global epidemic, with 80% of people with diabetes living in low and middle income countries. Project HOPE began addressing diabetes in 1998, with the launch of the Diabetes Education Program in China. Diabetes programs followed in Mexico, India and New Mexico, reaching countries with large numbers of people impacted by the disease. The programs focus on skills building among health care providers at all levels, developing innovative community-based responses and linking rural facilities to larger hospitals and networks to increase access to specialized care.
The successful implementations of our health education and humanitarian assistance programs have been highlighted in journal articles, applied in case studies, presented at international global health conferences and developed into posters and other materials that demonstrate our program results. Check out some examples below.
