Physicians for Social Justice (PSJ)

PSJ's mission is to promote community health, as well as support underserved rural communities to realize their highest attainable standard of health. This mission is borne out of our strong conviction that physicians have a crucial role to play toward the realization of the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals(MDGs), especially in regard to those goals related to health.
