Video: PIH Staff Reflect On Justice In Health Care

Published by admin on

PIHers share their perspectives on health as a human right

Posted on January 26, 2021

As 2020 drew to a close, we asked our staff around the world one question: what would justice in health care look like to you?

From Peru to Malawi, our colleagues reflected on this question and shared their insights, drawn from both professional expertise and lived experience—99% of our staff are from the country where they work.

Our colleagues’ responses wove together themes that are integral to PIH’s work, such as eliminating disparities in care delivery, providing culturally relevant care, and delivering quality care to patients most at-risk due to systemic injustice.

While their answers varied, all of our colleagues, in their own ways, captured the heart of PIH’s mission: to provide a preferential option for the poor.

Hear from PIH’s drivers around the world to see how they go above and beyond, handling responsibilities that extend far beyond transporting patients.

Every person, no matter who they are or where they’re from, deserves the best health care we know how to offer.
