Project HOPE was one of the first responders to the humanitarian crisis in Kosovo right after the war in 1999. We provided numerous shipments of medicine and medical supplies to the country, which was seriously affected by the bombing and left with almost no infrastructure. In 2000, Project HOPE, in partnership with the World Health Organization, implemented family medicine retraining programs.
In 2003, with support from the Swedish International Development Agency, Project HOPE began implementing a three-year program to fight HIV/AIDS in the Western Balkans. In this program, Project HOPE worked with 17 local NGOs working in the field of HIV/AIDs in the area of prevention for vulnerable populations. We also provided training on different HIV/AIDS related subjects to infectious disease specialists and primary care physicians.
Kosovo is now one of the countries benefiting from Project HOPE’s multi-country Strategic Medical Re-Supply Program. Through this humanitarian assistance program Project HOPE ships donated medicines, medical equipment and supplies to hospitals and health clinics in Kosovo so that the limited resources of these medical institutions can be applied to improving quality of care for their patients.
