Despite much progress, Infectious Diseases such as Tuberculosis (TB) or HIV still threaten the lives and well-being of millions of people around the world.  For almost 20 years, Project HOPE has implemented infectious disease programs, with our approaches targeted to suit the needs of the country and communities we work in.  Our approach to TB management and control and HIV prevention and treatment focuses on strengthening the health system as a whole, including improving access to quality laboratory services.  By building the capacity of health care workers at both national and community levels, we strengthen the ability of countries to provide quality diagnosis and treatment using the latest techniques. Our TB programs are designed in support of the Stop TB Strategy recommendations, and many also address HIV/AIDS and TB Co-infection.  

Project HOPE’s HIV work has focused on prevention and care of orphans and vulnerable children, in particular strengthening the capability of caregivers & guardians with parenting education and economic strengthening so they can better address the needs of all children under their care. 

Project HOPE also works with Ministries of Health to identify gaps in vaccinations and works to bring these much needed medications to those in need.  An emerging area is addressing neglected tropical diseases that persist throughout the world.
