Internet Access for Rural Health Clinics
Roll over image to zoom in
The internet age has made instantaneous, around-the-world communication the new standard. Yet in an era when links around the globe can happen at the speed of light, too many villages in our global community are still dark.
Partners In Health (PIH) does heroic work cultivating healthcare infrastructure in the developing world. There are PIH clinics in the most remote and needy areas -- for instance, the mountains in Lesotho where remote clinics are only accessible by small airplanes. But without telephones or roads to civilization, those embattled clinics are unable to contact each other or the nearest city to coordinate vital triage and emergency medical information sharing.
This Gift That Gives More™ funds one day of satellite internet access for a health clinic in Rwanda, Malawi, or Lesotho.
Partners In Health (PIH) 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.
