Since 1958, Project HOPE has confronted the world’s greatest health challenges and daunting emergencies. They have responded to hurricanes and earthquakes and the humanitarian consequences of civil war. They were on the frontlines of an Ebola outbreak in Africa and rebuilt creaking public health networks in the Soviet bloc during the Cold War and after the Iron
Curtain fell. When deadly tsunamis hit Japan and Southeast Asia, Project HOPE was quick to deploy and stayed for months.
Rabih Torbay, president and CEO of Project HOPE, discusses how the international organization prepares for and responds to crisis situations around the world, and what others can learn their work.
