For more than 60 years, Project HOPE has transformed the health and well-being of people and communities around the world. We work on the front lines of the world’s health challenges, partnering hand-in-hand with communities, health care workers and public health systems to ensure sustainable change.
Project HOPE delivers essential medicines and supplies, health expertise and medical training to respond to disaster, prevent disease, promote wellness and save lives around the world. When you volunteer with Project HOPE, you help make our lifesaving work around the globe possible.
Since our founding in 1958, volunteers have remained central to Project HOPE’s mission as the “People-to-People Health Foundation.” Project HOPE volunteers are a select group of subject matter experts representing diverse specialties.
Project HOPE volunteers serve to:
- Build Capacity of health care workers and health systems
- Improve Quality of health care and global health programs
- Provide Care during emergencies and health crises
- Support Operations through other expertise such as information technology, monitoring and evaluation, fundraising and communications
What We Do
Project HOPE works in five main areas: disasters and health crises; infectious diseases; noncommunicable diseases; maternal, neonatal, and child health; and health policy.
In disaster, crisis and beyond, HOPE is there: providing direct health care services, equipping clinics and hospitals, training local health care workers, and delivering solutions that help people access the health care services they need.
When disaster strikes in places like the Bahamas and Mozambique, our emergency response teams are on the ground — providing care for evacuees and supporting local health care systems through recovery.
When mothers and babies are at risk in places like Sierra Leone and Indonesia, HOPE trains nurses and midwives with the skills they need to save lives.
When refugees and migrants cross the border looking for a better life, HOPE supports the health systems that will take them on.
And when people with HIV want a different future for their families, HOPE engages entire communities engages entire communities to break down barriers and change the narrative.
Healing people. Transforming lives.
As the world’s population rises, a growing shortage of health care workers threatens to undermine incredible gains in global health. We’re building a different world: a strong and resilient global community of health care workers who practice innovative solutions in their communities — and then pass them on to others.
Project HOPE places power in the hands of local health care workers to save lives around the world. Whether training midwives in Sierra Leone, outfitting hospitals in Indonesia, or resupplying clinics devastated by disaster, we are committed to empowering health care workers with the support they need to heal people who need it most.
We also believe in long-term solutions that transform lives and communities. Ending preventable deaths of mothers and newborns. Putting an end to AIDS and Tuberculosis. Strengthening health care systems to withstand disaster. Advancing health policy that can change lives.
