What Drives Us
“The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world.” - Dr. Paul Farmer, PIH co-founder
Right to Health
We believe that everyone has the inalienable right to be healthy and to fulfill their potential.
We stand in solidarity with those living at the margins of society as a result of centuries of oppression and work together to cure systemic injustice.
We walk shoulder-to-shoulder with our patients—our true bosses—and support them through any means possible, for as long as it takes.
We recognize that real progress comes through strong partnerships and align with our patients, colleagues, and public and private partners to make the impossible, possible.
