I am excited to share Hope Through Health’s first quarterly progress report. Our hope is that this report will keep you informed about the impact that your support is having on the patients we serve in Togo, West Africa. In the attached report we share with you an honest portrayal of the successes and challenges we face in attempting to improve quality and expand access to health care for the most underserved in northern Togo.
The first quarter of 2013 was an exciting period of growth for Hope Through Health and our partner organization, AED-Lidaw.
• Our central Kara Clinic was recognized by the Ministry of Health for maintaining the highest adherence and lowest rates of loss to follow up in the Kara Region.
• Staff implemented a new Monitoring, Evaluation and Quality dashboard designed with the help of Partners In Health and participated in computer literacy training conducted by MIT students from our partner organization, GlobeMed.
• In the US, our first annual report was released (http://hthglobal.org/files/HTH_2012_Annual_Report.pdf), we launched a new partnership with One Day’s Wages and our Annual NYC Benefit, held in January, was a huge success.
As with all of our efforts, this report is a work in progress and we welcome your feedback. Please reach out to me or any member of our team with your questions and suggestions. We would love to hear from you and continue this dialogue about the transformative impact your support has on improving the health of individuals and communities in Togo.
