Project HOPE helps train the staff necessary to operate hospitals, clinics and community health programs in the poorest regions of the world. Programs range from the training of community health promoters in areas such as primary care, reproductive health, and maternal and children’s health, to the establishment of highly specialized, tertiary care postgraduate medical programs in fields such as nursing and health professional continuing education.
We use a “train the trainer” methodology in which local health professionals are taught how to teach others what they have learned in HOPE’s programs. This approach has resulted in more than 2 million health care workers trained over the course of our history.
Now - instead of equipping themselves with pencil and paper for regular data collection - staff are taking technology to some of the most remote regions of the world to gather data more quickly and accurately and to improve results.
