Mission

The Strengthening Care Opportunities through Partnership in Ethiopia (SCOPE) project improves health in Ethiopian regions affected by HIV/AIDS through medical and faith community partnerships dedicated to outreach, education, and training. 

  • Outreach to local communities, aimed at reducing stigma and expanding HIV testing, diagnosis, treatment and care.
  • Education of new global health leaders through university-affiliated fellowship programs.
  • Training local faith leaders in the importance of reducing barriers to HIV testing and care.

 

Partners

SCOPE is a partnership between the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health, University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington, the University of Gondar, Ethiopia, and the North Gondar Diocese of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. This partnership between university-based medicine and the religious community builds on the strengths of both, using the broad and influential reach of the faith community to expand understanding of and access to modern medical diagnostics and treatment.
