Perhaps no other region is as diverse culturally, economically or in terms of religion as the Southeast Asia and Middle East region. Yet in spite of their differences, each country faces similar health threats. Health of women and children, childhood cancers and infectious and chronic diseases have been identified as important health issues to be confronted in this region.
Project HOPE has created successful program models, which have the ability to be replicated in multiple settings. These programs provide sustainable solutions to health care needs by providing education for health professionals from all levels and addressing issues related to infectious diseases and women’s health.
Future programs will have a greater emphasis on cross-country collaboration, sharing of information, experiences and best practices.
Project HOPE has helped strengthen the partnership between the Community Health Volunteers and Traditional Birth Attendants (so they don't handle deliveries themselves but refer women to deliver with midwives).
Community Health Workers in Serang, Indonesia have been trained by Project HOPE. They encourage pregnant women to visit Health Posts where they receive better care.
