The HopeXchange Medical Center is a modern, innovative facility designed to promote action towards catalyzing the rampant disease and ailments found in sub-Saharan Africa. It will be a regional hub for the delivery of specialized medical training and patient services. The three main elements to the Medical Center are the Clinical and Surgical Units, The Institute for Medical Education and Clinical Training, and the Clinical and Translational Research Program. The Medical Center serves as the primary clinical and research site for The HopeXchange Health Project.
The HopeXchange Health Project is a collaborative international effort aimed at increasing healthcare capacity in sub-Saharan Africa through the development of an innovative, replicable, and scalable model. It is directed in a close collaboration with the Ghana Ministry of Health and a network of prominent local and international partners.
The Project addresses major health issues- particularly of woman and children, in sub-Saharan Africa. These include infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria), maternal-child health (prenatal screening, nutrition and immunizations), and cancer (with a special focus on breast, cervical and prostate cancer), as well as specialized fields of medical interest such as ophthalmology (avoidable blindness, pediatric ophthalmology, vitreoretinal disease), craniofacial malformation (cleft lip and palate) and cardiovascular conditions of childhood.
