Partners in Health (PIH) was founded in 1987 to bring quality medical care to rural Haiti. Since then, PIH has expanded to several countries around the world including Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Russia, Peru, and Navajo Nation in the United States. PIH also partners with several sister organizations to increase its ability to further its mission. In 2012, PIH launched its newest project in the Chiapas region of Mexico. PIH draws on the world’s best medical institutions to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. According to PIH’s mission statement, its mission is both medical and moral, and it is based on solidarity rather than charity alone.
