Project HOPE supported refugees forced to flee war torn Syria and other countries who crossed the border into Macedonia en route for western Europe in September 2015. The influx of thousands of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa who crossed the Greece/Macedonia border daily caused a major strain on Macedonia's health care system and resources. Project HOPE responded with critically needed shipments of medicines, including vaccines, medical supplies and the organization deployed medical volunteers to provide medical care directly to refugees, including children in Macedonia.
In 2015, HOPE initiated a pilot Innovation Project for Electronic Patient files using available technology including tablets to reduce time spent on data collection and to improve personal data protection and quality of data collected for patients within the University Dermatology Clinic Skopje.
In 1992, HOPE began a program for hospital managers in Macedonia to improve patient care by upgrading the management skills of key hospital and health professional staff. These health care professionals were trained on topics such as human resource management, policy, financial analysis and marketing.
In 2007, Project HOPE began implementing the Strategic Medical Re-Supply Program in Macedonia to improve the quality of care for patients by providing targeted donations of medicines and medical supplies. By providing donations valued at more than $20 million, Project HOPE is helping the Ministry of Health and hospitals increase budget saving and improve the availability of appropriate medicines and medical supplies.
As part of the Strategic Medical Re-Supply Program in Macedonia, Project HOPE volunteer doctors, nurses and other health professionals provide training and peer-to-peer education to local health care professionals in the areas of pediatrics, oncology and radiotherapy.
Project HOPE is making a major commitment to increase the survival chances of premature babies and improve perinatal care in Macedonia with donated equipment.
Because of Macedonia's high infant mortality, Project HOPE e.V. Germany has launched an ambitious project to save newborn lives.
