Every year, millions suffer and die from conditions we know how to prevent, manage, and cure, because healthcare practitioners in underserved areas lack needed knowledge, training, and support. Imagine thousands of health workers effectively treating conditions like hepatitis C, HIV, or tuberculosis in their own communities, without sending patients hundreds of miles away to medical centers where care is too costly and too late. Project ECHO makes this possible by building communities of practice that connect local providers with specialists for remote training and mentoring. The ECHO Institute trains and supports partners worldwide to use the ECHO model for their priority health challenges. We will scale across India and Africa so that, by 2024, 100 million people will receive high-quality specialty health care locally. We will also implement a new digital infrastructure to more effectively disseminate training/support and quality improvement resources across our global network.
