Project HOPE helps countries fight the burdens of infectious diseases, focusing on TB and HIV/AIDS.
While they rarely make headlines in the United States anymore, infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV still threaten the lives and well-being of millions of people around the world. According to the World Health Organization, infectious diseases are the leading causes of death in low-income countries.
Project HOPE has implemented infectious disease programs for nearly 30 years, and our approaches are always tailored to suit the specific needs of the countries and communities where we work. We prioritize:
Reaching at-risk populations
Increasing case finding and detection
Expanding access to quality care, treatment, and support services
Improving adherence to treatment
There’s one key principle that underpins our approach: building the capacity of health care workers at both national and community levels is the most critical element in strengtheningcountries’ abilities to fight infectious diseases.
