Whether we’re leading cutting-edge research, collaborating with manufacturers and suppliers, or influencing policy, the wide-ranging work of Partners In Health has long served to challenge and notion that proven treatments are too difficult or costly to be effective in poor communities. For decades we’ve built our reputation on redefining what’s possible in global health – and then making it happen.
With the help of partners, PIH has served millions of patients, tackling diseases that others deemed too expensive and too difficult to treat in poor settings. PIH has proven the positive impact of integrated community-based care delivered by community health workers, and linked to health centers and hospitals.
By leveraging the benefits of modern medical science and the leadership, skills and experience of our patients, local governments and other partners, we strive for a world with equity in health care, and for communities with zero preventable deaths.
Health professionals in resource-poor settings need access to on-the-job education and training in order to provide high quality care for patients. The continued training and mentorship of PIH's network of doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and community health workers is critical piece to our work in Haiti, Rwanda and around the world.
Research generates new knowledge and provides the proof that our programs are working. From HIV/AIDS to multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, from cholera to community health workers, researching and documenting the impact of interventions has fostered global policy change and empowered others to take up this work.
