In 2011, PIH began supporting the Community Outreach and Patient Empowerment project in the Navajo Nation in the southwest United States. Working with the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Navajo Nation, and Navajo Area Indian Health Services, community health representatives target individuals with uncontrolled chronic diseases to improve self-management skills and increase coordination between clinic and community-based providers.

In 2010, PIH launched a new partnership to combat drug-resistant tuberculosis in Kazakhstan. Because of PIH’s track record of curing and curbing the spread of drug-resistant tuberculosis in the Russian Federation, the Kazakhstan Ministry of Health invited PIH to help fight one of the highest rates of drug-resistant tuberculosis in the world.

In 2009, PIH/Lesotho began the Maternal Mortality Reduction Program, increasing access for pregnant women to HIV testing, prenatal care, and clinic delivery. The program has led to a 350 percent increase in facility-based deliveries.
