Eswatini – Training and Infrastructure

HHI is working in Eswatini with Raleigh Fitkin Memorial Hospital to train nurses from 20 remote clinics to identifying patients with non-communicable diseases, infection control, safety, and patient education. This hospital serves the medical needs of 40 percent of the population of eSwatini. HHI, funded by BD, built a nurse housing unit for an extremely remote clinic to improve nurse retention that is critical to continuity of patient care.

Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment

Heart to Heart International deploys laboratory fellows in numerous African countries to assure and improve laboratory results by training, standardizing and the collection of quality metrics. The fellows work with in-country Center for Disease Control (CDC) technical specialists for this Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA) program collecting data to assess the impact of HIV in the areas of their study.

Pathologists Overseas

President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief

Heart to Heart International supports  the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) by working with subject matter experts to develop technical laboratory training on several complicated subjects such as Validation and Verification, Certainty of Measurement, and Risk Management. These lectures are used to train laboratory directors and managers in Asia and Africa to continuously improve the quality of the laboratory results reported in their hospitals.

Since 1992 HHI has distributed more than $3 billion in humanitarian aid worldwide.
