Everyone should have access to quality health care. But for millions around the world, that’s not the reality.
PIH Canada’s mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, 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.
The organization was founded in 1987, to support a one-room health clinic serving a destitute squatter settlement in rural Haiti. PIH’s founders believed the conditions in the settlement — the crushing poverty, absence of modern health care and pervasive poor health — were not inevitable. These were social conditions subject to human intervention and so could be changed — in Haiti or anywhere in the world.
In the more than three decades since, having served millions of patients across four continents, created thousands of jobs and transformed global health, the work of PIH has proved its founders right.
PIH Canada opened its offices in 2011 to strengthen the work and add its voice to the Canadian movement for health as a human right.
The charity is now looking for new directors who will provide strong governance leadership to the board and will serve as enthusiastic ambassadors for the organization. It is specifically looking for people with a background in:
Finance and Technology
Marketing and Communications
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
If you are excited by the mission of PIH Canada and have the eagerness and excitement to share it with others, then we would love to hear from you!
