Partners In Health (PIH)

Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair. We draw on the resources of the world's leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world's poorest and sickest communities. At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone. When our patients are ill and have no access to care, our team of health ...

Partners In Health is deeply committed to our goals of combating Ebola and advancing long-term, systemic change in the public health systems in Liberia and Sierra Leone. We have made significant progress in the realization of these goals. Thanks to your support, we addressed gaps in the immediate Ebola response swiftly and nimbly, and are now successfully integrating emergency efforts into broader strategies to strengthen the public health system. PIH continues to embrace the opportunity to improve the quality of care available and secure healthy and resilient futures for the people and communities we serve in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The need for investment in the Liberian and Sierra Leonean health systems has never been greater, and strengthening health systems is at the core of the PIH mission. With the decline in the number of Ebola cases, PIH’s work has progressed toward recovery and rebuilding the health care systems in each country, developing our plans in partnership with the Ministries of Health based on their evolving needs and priorities.

Our current roadmap includes:
• Ensuring that all patients can safely receive care;
• Repairing and making other critical improvements at hospitals and local clinics;
• Training community health workers, nurses, and doctors; and
• Providing technical assistance to the Ministries of Health.

Strong public health systems are an essential component of getting to, and staying at, zero new cases of Ebola, and of guaranteeing that patients, survivors, and others can receive high-quality comprehensive health care. As we have done in countries ravaged by genocide and natural disasters, PIH will bring safe, effective health care to communities in need.

We thank you again for your partnership in accomplishing these goals, and we hope you'll continue to join in our efforts.

PIH Haiti Earthquake Recovery Sept 2015 Update

Thank you for your generous support of Partners In Health, and our work to build back better in Haiti since the devastating 2010 earthquake.  Together, we've come a long way in improving access to high-quality health care, as is illustrated in the photograph above.  With your help, more Haitians can get the care and treatment that they need, free of charge, for the long-term. 
We’re excited to share the above photograph, highlighting an important partnership with a fellow health care organization:

At University Hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti, PIH and sister organization Zanmi Lasante clinical staff are partnering with The International Children’s Heart Foundation (ICHF) on their first trip to Mirebalais to perform pediatric cardiac surgery. ICHF brings the necessary staff and stuff (medication, surgical supplies, equipment) to support this type of surgery while focusing on building local capacity by training surgeons, nurses, and medical staff in the hospitals where they work. 

During their 2-week visit, the teams will focus on correcting two general types of heart issues: congenital heart conditions; and valvular heart disease.

Thank you again for your continued support, and for your belief in health care for all.
