Partners In Health (PIH) is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Boston, MA, whose mission is to provide quality health care for the poor and marginalized in Haiti, Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Peru, Mexico, Russia, Dominican Republic, and Navajo Nation. In addition, PIH has a growing network of affiliated organizations and initiatives in several other countries, including Nepal, Burundi, Mali, Liberia, and Togo. Through service delivery, training, advocacy and research, PIH works around the globe to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of it, to serve as an antidote to despair, and inspire others to do the same.
Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo (APZU) is the Malawi-based sister organization of PIH. APZU is transforming healthcare delivery in Neno District, one of the poorest and most remote districts in Malawi. Through 11 health centers and two hospitals APZU and the Malawi Ministry of Health (MOH) work shoulder-to-shoulder to provide free health care to a population of more than 140,000.
This is an exciting time for PIH. We are taking on immense challenges, and a newfound visibility has brought the opportunity to influence great change on the global stage. PIH seeks individuals committed to the mission and values (see PIH Values) of the organization to join the team.
