Project HOPE works to address the rapidly growing risks of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) worldwide—especially diabetes, hypertension, and respiratory diseases.
For more than 15 years, Project HOPE has implemented successful NCD programs in China, Egypt, India, Mexico, New Mexico, and South Africa and recently expanded to the United Arab Emirates and Puerto Rico. Our programs are tailored to meet country-specific needs and include approaches such as:
Increasing the capacity of health professionals at all levels through evidence-based education models and innovative online learning tools.
Improving patient self-management of NCDs through evidence-based models.
Engaging peers, family members, and the community to encourage healthy lifestyles through health education and community-based screenings.
Coordinating with local governments and partners on new health policies to improve the prevention, detection, management, and treatment of NCDs.
Increasing access to essential equipment and medicines.
Project HOPE also has experience establishing cadres of community-based health educators, implementing work, and school-based wellness programs and helping to strengthen cold chain capacity for delivery of NCD medicine such as insulin.
