Partners In Health (PIH) is a nonprofit corporation based in Boston, MA. Established in 1987, PIH is committed to working with partner organizations to improve the health and well-being of people living in poor communities. PIH believes that health care is a fundamental right not a priviledge.
To provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, PIH strives to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need and to serve as an antidote to despair.
Through our early work in Haiti and Peru, Partners In Health has developed a comprehensive model of community-based care in resource poor settings. With our partner projects in Haiti, Peru, Russia, Mexico, Guatemala, Rwanda, Lesotho, and the United States (Boston), we ask the communities we serve what ails them—from AIDS to women’s health issues to malnutrition and illiteracy. Then we do whatever it takes to make them well.
Partners In Health provides access primary health care and social support to our patients and their families. Our programs including offer assistance where it is most needed—by providing free health care and education for the poor and addressing basic social and economic needs. PIH programs serve a broad spectrum of needs, including providing food, shelter, clean water, education, and economic opportunities.
Support for Partners in health goes where it counts most: to place beds in rural clinics and hospitals, to purchase AIDS medications for patients living in poverty, to provide food for malnourished children and HIV patients, and to train health professionals to administer treatment programs.
