INJUSTICE

HAS A CURE

“The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world.” – Dr. Paul Farmer

Every day, the world’s most vulnerable people suffer from a lack of health care. Together we can cure this injustice.

people living with HIV

In Haiti, one in five children are so malnourished they face physical and cognitive stunting.

In Haiti, PIH-supported facilities and mobile clinics make use of Nourimanba, a peanut-based, ready-to-use therapeutic food specifically designed to treat child malnutrition.

Nourimanba is produced by PIH in a state-of-the-art facility in central Haiti that employs more than 50 people and turns the crops of local peanut farmers into 120 metric tons of lifesaving Nourimanba each year. Jobs at the factory stimulate the local economy, and Kendy is provided with a steady supply of nutrient-rich food and follow-up support from community health workers that can break the cycle of poverty and disease.

Your refusal to accept the injustice of child malnutrition allows us to ensure Kendy grows up strong and healthy.

In Malawi, the lifetime risk of a woman dying in pregnancy or childbirth is 1 in 60.

In Canada, it’s 1 in 6,100.

Women die in childbirth because of delays in seeking care, reaching care, and receiving care. Because PIH works at all levels of the health system, from communities to health centers to hospitals, we address all three challenges.

That means well-trained and compensated doctors and nursing staff and community health workers, safe and well-equipped surgical suites for C-sections, emergency transportation, blood banks, and so much more. Ensuring they’re all in place for a mother like Mary is a matter of social justice.

Mary is alive because all these things were available when she needed them. Her story of survival, made real thanks to your partnership, leaves no doubt that injustice has a cure.

One month of malnutrition care

  • In Haiti, starvation takes an especially cruel toll, leaving 1 in 5 children malnourished. The results are devastating: stunting, cognitive disabilities, even death.

Give today and show the world that injustice has a cure

In every community we serve, we’re fighting to build a more just and equitable world. We’re driven by our unrelenting belief that every person, no matter who they are or where they’re from, deserves a fighting chance at life.

That no child anywhere should starve to death when there’s enough food to feed everyone on this planet. That no woman anywhere should bleed to death giving birth when modern medicine knows how to stop it. That no person anywhere should die from preventable disease when treatments are available.

Your gift ensures that none of this has to happen.
