Partners in Health is a is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential health care option for the poor. Founded in 1987 to deliver health care to the residents of rural Haiti, the group now helps provide health care to underserved communities in ten countries around the world. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in poor communities, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them, and to serve as an antidote to despair.
Partners in Health draws on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities. At its root, the group's mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity rather than on charity alone.
