Over view

Our public health department began in 2009 with the distribution of mosquito nets. The rest is history.

Working with the aim to build healthy communities, our approach is broad-based covering

  1. Health Education
  2. Disease prevention and health promotion
  3. Screening for early detection of common illnesses
  4. Treatment of minor illnesses
  5. Prompt referral of complex cases
  6. Follow up
  7. Rehabilitation

HopeCore's approach is sustainable and replicable. All programming works within existing institutions to ensure the longevity of programming. We partner with the Department of Health Services and sanitation, Ministry of Education, schools, and many others to ensure all activities are working hand in hand with other area interventions and that we do not duplicate efforts.

Throughout all programming, HopeCore empowers clients to take control of their health and that of their families through the provision of clear and context-specific health information combined with accessible and free clinical service being offered through a range of community touchpoints.
