Partners In Health Canada: Improving the Health of the World’s Poor and Marginalized

Partners in Health (PIH) brings high-quality health care and other resources to impoverished communities not as an act of charity, but as a fulfillment of fundamental human rights. Working with governments, foundations, corporations, and individuals from around the world, PIH is a leader in global health equity.

Funds from the Honey & Barry Sherman Legacy Foundation are used to support PIH care delivery platforms in Haiti and five countries in Africa. This includes mobile clinics in rural and remote communities in Haiti to detect and treat severe and moderate acute malnutrition for hundreds of infants and young children and infants; a program at the University Hospital of Mirebalais to give Haitian women and their newborns care and support throughout pregnancy and the first months of a baby’s life; and support for the Butaro Cancer Center of Excellence, the largest cancer center in the Rwanda, which serves more than 1,000 patients a year with diagnoses, chemotherapy, surgery, palliative care, and psycho-social supports.

In 2024, the Honey & Barry Sherman Legacy Foundation announced at $1 million gift to PIH in support of life-saving women’s and child health in Liberia. This commitment builds on the family’s long-standing support of PIH.
