Expert in Maternal, Neonatal and/or Child Health - Dominican Republic

Project HOPE is seeking qualified, Spanish-speaking volunteers to support clinical and community health initiatives. The Monte Plata, Herrera, and Haina clinics in the Dominican Republic provide quality primary health care services to underserved populations, featuring the "5 Star Program," a Ministry of Health-approved and nationally recognized program developed as an innovative strategy to promote patient awareness and compliance during pregnancy and throughout the first five years of life. The HOPE program serves a population of nearly 500,000 (approximately 5% of the country) and focuses on essential health services. The 5 Star Program can be summarized as an inexpensive way to improve care quality that is easy to monitor; an excellent way to educate pregnant women, mothers and the community at-large on a vitally important subject; and an effective means to empower and motivate mothers to serve as role models for others. Volunteer opportunities may include supporting the "5 Stars" Maternal and Child Health program or other clinical services and community health programs offered via the two primary care clinics.

Once you are approved, specific goals and objectives will be developed to meet the needs of the clinic and communities while engaging the specific skills of the volunteer.

First Responder Trainer - Puerto Rico

There is interest in forming community-based emergency response teams, and the leadership in Ponce, Puerto Rico in particular would like to coordinate training for first responders: CPR, First Aid, emergency coordination, emergency preparedness workshops that they can deliver to communities.

The true first responders are community members directly affected by a disaster. This collaboration will serve to build the capacity of local responders to prevent, prepare for, and respond to disasters in coordination with government leadership in emergency management. The program will leverage innovative training methodologies including virtual and simulation-based scenarios to build knowledge and skills in local emergency preparedness and response. This will be piloted within the Ponce Municipality and can be scaled island-wide to develop a network of coordinated community response teams supporting existing response structure. Each designated community would identify 1-2 local emergency coordinators to receive training in skills such as community-based preparedness, risk assessment and mitigation, communications, and data collection and reporting. The local emergency coordinator would oversee a team of emergency responders within their own community, including designated health professionals who will receive training in targeted skills such as emergency obstetrics and first aid in austere environments. The Community-based response team will incorporate priority areas of expertise in multiple sectors, including not only healthcare, but also logistics, communications, mental health, continuity of operations and health infrastructure. Whether in the event of a small, localized disaster such as a flood or landslide or as part of an island-wide response, this team would serve as the critical first responders, able to identify and reduce risks in advance of an emergency event, gather and report information, provide immediate care to affected populations, safely manage and remove debris, and leverage additional emergency supports from existing coordination systems.
