Hope for Humans December 2015 Newsletter

Hope for Humans December 2015 Newsletter


The Lancet Neurology

This month the prestigious Lancet Neurology wrote an article about Nodding Syndrome. Writer Adrian Burton begins with Uganda’s initial attempts to understand the disease, challenges faced by the government’s health teams, and HOPE FOR HUMANS’ impact as the only NGO working to provide care for these children and their families.

We are honored to be a part of this publication and appreciate Adrian for recognizing our work with Nodding Syndrome and the need for urgency in providing care for children with this horrible disease.

Read the full article here.

Global Nurse Initiative


This month Sarah Richards with Global Nurse Initiative performed research at the HOPE FOR HUMANS Care Center. Sarah’s focus was to train our staff on data collection and best research practices to ultimately acquire data for tracking nodding syndrome children’s growth.

This was made possible by Geneva Global and their grant towards music therapy and research at our Odek Care Center. We are so honored to be working with both of these amazing organizations!
