PROJECT HOPE: Women and Children Health Clinic

The clinics have provided over two million medical services to more than 100,000 women and children to date.

Project HOPE has been working in the Dominican Republic since 1996, when we first began collaborating with the local organization, the Dominican Association of the Order of Malta (ADOM), to improve the health of women and children. Project HOPE – with the support of ADOM - opened a women’s and children’s health clinic in the Herrera neighborhood of Santo Domingo in 2002 and in the more rural Monte Plata in 2003. While both clinics are now self-reliant, Project HOPE continues to provide technical oversight in order to optimize efficiency. The clinics have provided over two million medical services to more than 100,000 women and children to date. A third clinic is opening in May. http://www.projecthope.org/where-we-work/americas/dom-republic.html
