Programs: Although immediate humanitarian assistance is often an element of its activities, Project HOPE always stresses long-term, systemic solutions to health care problems. Programs cover the development of health care facilities and all aspects of education for nurses, doctors, engineers, and managers. Education initiatives include: health promotion, disease prevention, health care in the community, specialist hospital services, biomedical engineering, health care management, and policy. The focus for Project HOPE programs is currently: Africa, The Americas and the Caribbean, Asia and the Middle East,Central Eastern Europe, and Russia Eurasia. HOPE has experience in over 100 countries around the world, and generally conducts programs in more than 35 differnt countries in any one year. To support a program, Project HOPE actively facilitates partnerships between a number of organizations and individuals who make the program a success, combining expertise, both internal and external, to the host country. This may include government departments, health care institutions, health care professionals, and funding organizations. Each program partner agrees to contribute resources and expertise to achieve the designated health outcomes. The specific design and implementation of a program is undertaken by HOPE health care educators working with their host counterparts. Together, they address critical health care needs while educating others about the successful processes and procedures, which can be adopted. Project HOPE's emphasis is on efficient, effective, solutions for the long term. Please refer to the listing in this directory under Project HOPE - The People-to-People Health Foundation for 1999 financial figures. Project HOPE- The People-to-People Health Foundation replaced the name People-to-People Health Foundation as the legal name.

Mission:
It is Project HOPE''s mission to achieve sustainable advances in health care around the world by implementing health education programs, conducting health policy research, and providing humanitarian assistance in areas of need; thereby contributing to human dignity, promoting international understanding and enhancing social and economic development. The essence of Project HOPE is teaching; the basis is partnership. Every year HOPE raises approximately $120 million of resources to support programs around the world. Over 90 percent of these resources are spent on programs. Funds are raised from government, multilateral organizations, multinational corporations, private institutions, and the general public. Until recently, fundraising and recruitment of health care professionals has been principally in the U.S., but since 1990, HOPE has developed new operations outside the U.S.with National Boards in the United Kingdom and Germany.
