Additional Information:

Project HOPE has been working in Kosovo since 1992. With an office based in Macedonia, our goal is to provide programs ranging from community interventions to trainings for hospital based health care providers. The ultimate goal is to support the development of the health systems throughout the region. In 2007, HOPE began implementing the Strategic Medical Resupply Program (SMRP), a program designed to improve the quality of care for patients in the Balkans region by providing targeted donations of medicines and medical supplies. This humanitarian assistance program is demonstrably improving health services in the region during its difficult transition of the health systems to meet global health care standards. By providing medicine and medical supplies valued at over $60 million, Project HOPE is helping the Ministries of Health and hospitals increase budget savings and improve the availability of appropriate medicines and medical supplies for the people in the region. More recently, HOPE is implementing a hospital-based program that provides hands on trainings, lectures, and advanced skills to healthcare workers. We are currently focusing on nursing education in Pediatrics, Women's Health, and OBGYN.
