Partners In Health Canada is a non-profit organization relentlessly committed to improving the health of the poor and marginalized. Following a model of care and accompaniment practiced by Partners In Health for more than 30 years, PIH Canada supports a comprehensive approach to providing high-quality health care for the poor; one that meets the needs of individual patients while also addressing root causes of disease and poor health in impoverished communities.
About Partners In Health Canada
We believe high-quality medical care is a human right, and that the health of the world’s poor, wherever they live, places a unique claim on our collective moral obligation. This is the vision that PIH Canada’s work upholds.
