Brandie Conforti, Director of Corporate Relations, Partners In Health  An international affairs professional with an interest in global politics and systems  Has been working in the non-profit sector for 10 years  Focuses on fundraising, strategy and relationship-building  Has been with Partners In Health since February 2008  Mobilizes corporate cash and in-kind support for the organization’s programs around the world  Served as Executive Director of the Boston World Affairs Council for 7 years prior to joining PIH
  23. 23. FEBRUARY 3, 2010
  24. 24. Who is PIH and What Do they Do? Founded in 1987 by Dr. Paul Farmer, Partners In Health (PIH) is an international health care organization based in Boston that works in 12 countries to deliver high quality health care and to break the cycle of disease and poverty. PIH’s work has three goals: to care for patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease, and to share lessons learned around the world.
  25. 25. PIH Worldwide PIH implements its vision through 49 health facilities by a staff of more than 11,000 people, over half of whom are trained and compensated community health workers who themselves are poor. We are the main provider of healthcare for more than 2.3 million people around the world.
  26. 26. Partners In Health Around the World
  27. 27. The PIH Approach • Providing access to primary health care for the poor • Training and employing a network of community health workers • Prescribing food for prevention and treatment of malnutrition and disease • Addressing basic social and economic needs • Reinforcing the public sector
  28. 28. PIH in Haiti PIH has been providing vital health care services in Haiti for more than 20 years and is one of the largest health care providers in the country, working with the Haitian Ministry of Health to deliver comprehensive health care services to a catchment area of 1.2 million across the Central Plateau and the Lower Artibonite Valley.
  29. 29. PIH Sites in Haiti
  30. 30. On the Ground in Haiti Although PIH is not a disaster relief organization we were well placed to respond to this disaster:  PIH in Haiti, Zanmi Lasante, is a Haitian-led organization with thousands of employees, who were ready to spring into action quickly.  PIH had more than 100 doctors, 600 nurses and 4,000 employees on the ground in Haiti working from 12 existing PIH medical facilities in Haiti before the earthquake struck on January 12th.
  31. 31. PIH’s Immediate Response • PIH quickly established field hospitals in Port-au- Prince and took the lead to set up 20 operating rooms, with 12 functioning 24-hours a day. PIH was the first group designated by the World Health Organization to serve as the primary coordinators of University Hospital in Port-au-Prince (HUEH). • PIH established a relief transfer system to transfer patients from Port-au-Prince to PIH sites in the Central Plateau and Lower Artibonite Valley.
  32. 32. PIH’s Immediate Response • PIH was one of the first NGOs to evacuate patients in critical condition to hospitals in the United States and Dominican Republic and continues to coordinate the evacuation of patients in critical condition to the United States Naval Ship, the U.S.N.S. Comfort. • PIH has sent 66 plane loads with more than 235 medical volunteers – orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and other medical professionals – and 150,000 lbs of medical supplies to support the more than 4,500 PIH health care providers already in Haiti.
  33. 33. Looking Ahead Looking ahead, PIH’s efforts will be spent in three core areas: • Supporting the public sector’s ability to provide health care. • Mobilizing people at the grassroots level to participate in the health care system. • Addressing the mid- and long-term health, social, and economic ramifications of the resettlement of tens of thousands of people from Port-au-Prince to areas where PIH works.
  34. 34. Looking Ahead The long-term ramifications in Haiti are going to be significant and far-reaching with a new, large group of vulnerable and displaced people. As we begin to look forward we recognize that out of great tragedy we have the opportunity to build Haiti back better.
