We are revolutionizing global health, reviving communities, and saving lives. These are the founding principles of Partners In Health, a group with the moral and ethical mandate to provide the disadvantaged with preferred access to healthcare.
A group of health experts, academics, and activists make up the nonprofit organization Partners In Health. The company offers healthcare, conducts research, offers training, and promotes human rights all around the world. The organization’s two main objectives are to help individuals in need with the benefits of contemporary medicine and to serve as an “antidote to despair.”
Jim Kim, Ophelia Dahl, Paul Farmer, Todd McCormack, and Thomas J. White established Partners In Health in 1987 to offer healthcare in Haiti. The global reach of Partners In Health has now been extended to places including Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Peru, Mexico, Russia, the Dominican Republic, and the Navajo Nation. Additionally, they have a growing network of associated groups in a number of other nations.
Health is a human right that should be available to everyone, according to Partners In Health’s founders and current contributors. Paul Farmer, the co-founder, is a proponent of human rights, contending that “the concept that certain lives value less is the basis of all that’s wrong with the world.” Partners In Health puts this conviction into action.
