Pay a Health Worker's Salary
Health workers -- nurses, doctors, pharmacists, community health workers, laboratory technicians, physician assistants, nurse assistants, mental health workers, and many more -- are at the core of health systems everywhere, diagnosing and treating diseases, educating and caring for patients, and developing and implementing policies and strategies to combat disease.
But in sub-Saharan Africa, a mere 3% of the world's health workers struggle to combat 24% of the global disease burden. Meanwhile, the health of the Haitian people ranks as the worst in the Western Hemisphere, with the worst malnutrition, the highest rates of infant and maternal mortality, and the worst AIDS epidemic in the Americas.
Funding for community-based health care workers is desperately needed to spread not only healing, but hope to these ravaged communities. This Gift That Gives Moreâ¢ funds the monthly salary for a trained health worker to provide community-based care in Rwanda or Haiti through Partners In Health (PIH).
Choose to fund one week of salary ($15) or an entire month ($62.50)!
Partners In Health is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH 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.
