Ophelia Dahl

Ophelia Dahl co-founded Partners In Health (PIH), a global health non-profit dedicated to delivering high-quality care to the poor. PIH’s history, from its origins in Haiti’s rural Central Plateau, where Ms. Dahl met PIH co-founder Paul Farmer over thirty years ago, through its expansion to ten countries on four continents and a global movement for the human right to health, was recently captured in the feature-length documentary “Bending the Arc.” Ms. Dahl led PIH as Executive Director for 16 years, and now chairs its Board of Directors. She continues to write, teach, and speak about the health and rights of the poor, moral imagination, and accompaniment.

Ms. Dahl also is a Trustee of Wellesley College, her alma mater. Ms. Dahl is a recipient of the Radcliffe Medal, Union Theological Seminary’s Union Medal and, together with her PIH colleagues, the Hilton Humanitarian prize. She lives in Cambridge, MA with her family.
