Partners in Health a Nonprofit Corporation Overview
Programs: Established in 1987, PIH provides technical and financial assistance, medical supplies, and administrative support to partner projects in Haiti, Peru, Russia, Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Mexico, Guatemala, Kazakhstan, the Dominican Republic, and Boston. The goal of these partnerships is neither charity nor development but rather "pragmatic solidarity" - a commitment to work alongside the destitute sick against the economic and political structures that cause and perpetuate poverty and illness. PIH believes that health care is a fundamental right, not a privilege.The work of PIH has three goals: to care for our patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, we seek to raise the standard of care for the destitute sick everywhere.
