About PIH

Partners In Health is a non-profit organization based in Boston that works with partner organizations based in some of the world's poorest communities to improve the health and well-being of those most in need. Responding to an epidemic in the shantytowns of Lima, Peru, in 1996, PIH pioneered successful, community-based treatment of MDR-TB in poor countries. The success of that program contributed to a change in WHO policies and to creation of the Green Light Committee to make effective MDR-TB treatment available to the poor. The organization currently has programs in Haiti, Peru, Russia, Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi, Mexico, Guatemala, and Boston.

The Division of Social Medicine and Health Inequalities (DSMHI) in the Department of Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) fosters the support and coordination of training, research, and service to reduce disparities in disease burden and to improve treatment outcomes both at home and abroad. The Division focuses on infectious diseases (e.g., HIV and tuberculosis) as well as non-infectious diseases (e.g., coronary artery disease, diabetes, addiction) and other health problems of major importance to society.
