Our long history in Africa – beginning in the mid-1960s with a visit by the SS HOPE to Guinea – demonstrates HOPE’s ability to address the evolving environment of health issues on the African continent.  Currently, Project HOPE programs in Africa focus on the continuing AIDS pandemic and its devastating impact on families, tuberculosis control, humanitarian assistance and the growing need for chronic disease education and prevention.
