Organizational Profile
Partners In Health (“PIH”), co-founded by Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl, and headquartered in Boston, MA, is an internationally recognized, non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through its service delivery, training, advocacy and research, PIH works globally to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need and to serve as an antidote to despair. PIH has major programs in Haiti, Peru, Guatemala, Mexico, Russia, Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Burundi, Kazakhstan, the Dominican Republic, and Boston, working tirelessly to lessen the joint burden of disease and poverty.
This is an exciting time for PIH as it is going through a period of significant growth. PIH played a vital role in the response and reconstruction of Haiti following the 2010 earthquake, and these efforts have resulted in both a broadened scope of work and heightened visibility for the organization.
