Project HOPE has partnered with Chinese leadership and Ministry of Health since 1983 to address some of the country's most pressing health issues including children's heart defects, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and nurse education.

Significant programs include

  • The Shanghai Children's Medical Center currently one of the world's premier children's heart centers where nearly 3,500 children receive lifesaving heart surgery every year. HOPE helped in the development of the facility, providing more than $30 million in medical equipment.  Support at the hospital continues with ongoing health care professional training.
  • The China Diabetes Education Program - a health education initiative that has trained and educated more than 200,000 health professionals and patients since its beginnings in 1998.
  • HIV/AIDS Health Professional Education Program - this program, developed in 2003 decreased mortality of HIV/AIDS patients in Hubei Province by 72 percent.
  • Wuhan University HOPE School of Nursing which has graduated more than 350 nurses since 2002.

Currently HOPE operates 13 programs in China including a pediatric epilepsy care and support program, oncology training, education for rural health care providers, children's nutrition program, nurse training and more.
