Partners In Health (PIH or “Zanmi Lasante” in Creole) works to promote health and social justice in the most destitute communities. Partners In Health considers health to be a human right.
For more than 20 years, Partners In Health has been providing vital health care in Haiti, and in doing so the organization is one of the largest health care providers in the country. PIH works together with the Ministère de la Santé d'Haïti in establishments located on the Plateau Central and in the Vallée de l'Artibonite. The vast majority of PIH employees are themselves originally from those same communities served. PIH employs approximately 4,000 Haitians.
The work of PIH begins with medical care but does not end there. PIH understands that disease is an integral part of the cycle of poverty and PIH is committed each and every day to eradicating it at any cost.
Through long-term partnerships with other organizations and the government, PIH offers free first-line health care and treatments against complex diseases such as AIDS and tuberculosis.
