HOPE has maintained a close relationship with Mexico since 1999, when we began HIV/AIDS education programs in marginalized areas of Mexico City. In 2001, the ongoing mission against HIV/AIDS was advanced when Mexico participated in a regional assessment of HIV/AIDS activities in Central America and, as a result, began offering training workshops to countries throughout the region, including Honduras and El Salvador.

In 2005 Project HOPE began addressing the growing diabetes epidemic in the country. HOPE developed a diabetes education program for patients and began using the "Training of Trainers" (TOT) strategy educate health care workers on the chronic disease.

Project HOPE also launched the diabetes awareness and prevention initiative, promoting "Healthy Habits for a Healthy Weight" among school children. The school based program focuses on raising awareness of the link between obesity and type 2 diabetes.

From 2006 to 2008 Project HOPE operated the Stigma & Discrimination-free Referral Network in operation. Through the program the government and non-government agencies providing HIV services were linked into a regional referral network, diminishing gaps in care and promoting a new professional culture, free of stigma and discrimination.
