Purpose of PIH Engage
Each year, malnutrition kills more than 3 million children worldwide. And every day, nearly 800 women die in childbirth. Needless, completely preventable deaths like these are driven by poverty and inequality. At Partners In Health, we believe that health is a human right, and we work to deliver high-quality health care to the poorest of the poor.
But the right to health—to not die in labor, to not die from starvation—will only be won through the work of a broad social movement of committed individuals. This is why we've built PIH Engage, a grassroots network of volunteer community organizers. Teams all over the country have committed to advocate for global health policy change, to educate the public about global health equity, and to generate unprecedented resources to support Partners In Health's lifesaving work.
