Project HOPE (Health Opportunities for People Everywhere)
RAD-AID is pleased to be partnered with Project HOPE. For more than fifty years, Project HOPE has delivered medical training and health education to 80 countries, and is an inspiring leader of international health relief efforts. Since early 2009, RAD-AID has been working to optimize radiology and medical imaging in the Project HOPE network of medical facilities and training programs. This partnership represents a spirit of innovation, bringing new technologies and vital medical imaging services to developing countries.
Examples of this collaboration are ongoing efforts to expand imaging programs in India, Haiti, Liberia, Ghana, and China. Through this partnership, RAD-AID volunteers and team members can go anywhere in the Project HOPE network. In July of 2010, Project HOPE and RAD-AID were featured in Scientific American for spearheading efforts in underserved regions of China and India in the Radiology Readiness Initiative. In further developing Radiology Readiness to help earthquake devastated Haiti, RAD-AID has been working with Project HOPE to respond to the Haitian population's health needs. RAD-AID is sending teams back to China and India to further expand work with Project HOPE in early 2011. Project HOPE has contributed multiple presentations to the RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology at Johns Hopkins in 2009 and 2010. Dr. John P. Howe III, Project HOPE President and CEO, attended the RAD-AID Conference of 2010, shown at right with RAD-AID CEO, Dr. Daniel Mollura.
