Partners In Health Engage (PIHE) is building the right to health movement by recruiting and empowering teams of dedicated volunteer community organizers. These teams drive campaigns focused on building and directing power towards generating new resources, fostering public discourse, and advocating for effective policies.
We organize by building strong teams and by fostering alliances with like-minded groups to ensure that the right to health is highlighted in the democratic process.
We educate by hosting discussion groups and public lectures about the right to health.
We generate resources to fund high quality healthcare for people living in poverty.
We advocate for global and domestic policies that further the right to health.
Together, we demand the right to health be protected for all people, everywhere.
Promoting and codifying the global right to health requires targeted political action. We meet with local and national government leaders to share lessons, stories, and positive results from PIH sites and to champion legislation that eliminates barriers to care. In so doing, we advocate for the radical notion that the poor deserve equal access to high-quality health care.
Understanding the systemic inequities that lead to poor health outcomes in impoverished countries is an essential component of Engage. Through curricula, webinars, discussions, and events, we raise awareness about the forces that prevent global health equity and highlight the links between poverty and poor health.
We plan and host fundraising events and campaigns to ensure PIH continues to have the resources to prevent senseless deaths and deliver high-quality health care in some of the world’s poorest places. Through our educational efforts and outreach with our Engage community, we’re not only fundraising—we’re also radically reimagining how wealth and health care access are understood.
