Support Project ECHO to Touch 1 Billion Lives by 2025.

The ECHO model is a revolution in education and care delivery. In the U.S. and around the world, people are not getting the care they need, when they need it, for complex but treatable conditions. Through telementoring ECHO builds capacity and creates access to high-quality specialty care, serving local communities everywhere. ECHO is changing the world, fast! It is operating in more than 30 countries, with over 220 partners, and tackling more than 100 key problems affecting lives and livelihoods.
