Around the world, people lack access to life-saving knowledge and expertise.

With Project ECHO, we know a world where life-saving best practices are available to every person, no matter their circumstance, is possible. Project ECHO’s revolutionary model provides training and mentorship to transform and sustain strong health systems where every person has fast access to the highest quality health care.

I find [ECHO to be] a very powerful model for capacity building, especially in the country where I come from: where we have few health care workers, very few specialists. I find it such a great, feasible model that can actually be applied even in resource-constrained settings.”

Because of the previous system [in South Africa], there are still a lot of disparities and inequities. We adopted ECHO because we needed an innovative solution to help address these disparities: where we could diagnose the patient early, and we could train doctors and nurses in the periphery.”

In one of the states [in India], the general population previously had zero access to address their mental health issues. Doctors who have been trained [through ECHO] are now writing prescriptions [for easily treated conditions] and referring patients to specialists.”

A rural health care worker can’t travel to the capital to attend a training on new guidelines. It would usually be years before new information or best practices made it to them. Now, with ECHO, that learning happens really fast.”
