Partners In Hope (PIH), which began in 2004 with a focus on treating HIV, has now become a centre of excellence for HIV and TB care. In 2015, PIH added an inpatient ward and has plans to expand to a full nonprofit teaching and research hospital. With experienced staff, excellent diagnostics, and over 6,000 HIV patients, it serves as a regional referral centre for complicated HIV cases. In partnership with the UCLA Program in Global Health, PIH also operates a USAID grant to provide training and mentoring in HIV and AIDS and TB care in more than 70 health facilities throughout Malawi. The hospital serves as a clinic of choice for a broad spectrum of medical cases. Partnerships with UCLA and the Malawi College of Medicine also provide many opportunities for teaching Malawian clinicians.
