Global HOPE has set seven primary goals that will be common to all pediatric hematology/oncology COE sites. These high level goals will be adapted for each country based on its current capabilities and priorities.
Health Outcomes. Global HOPE aims to improve the quality of care for pediatric hematology-oncology patients to positively affect clinical outcomes. In Botswana, we plan to train more than 2,400 healthcare workers and provide diagnosis and treatment to more than 650 new patients. In Malawi, we aim to train more than 1,300 healthcare workers and provide diagnosis and treatment to more than 1,700 new patients. In Uganda, we will train more than 1,000 healthcare workers and provide diagnosis and treatment to more than 3,000 new patients.
Operational Excellence. Strengthen local healthcare systems and infrastructure to support excellence in pediatric hematology/oncology care. Global HOPE will build Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Centers of Excellence to deliver the comprehensive multi-disciplinary care needed to treat pediatric cancer effectively
Sustainability and Replication. Global HOPE will ensure program sustainability and replication across all sites. During the initial five-year period of Global HOPE, Global HOPE will focus on building pediatric hematology/oncology COEs in Botswana, Malawi, and Uganda. In the long-term, Global HOPE anticipates that this initiative will expand to other countries through and beyond the existing Global HOPE pediatric hematology/oncology sites and Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) Network.
