PCI’s Mission: Disease Prevention, Community Health & Sustainable Development

PCI is transforming lives through community-driven change.

PCI’s mission is to prevent disease, improve community health and promote sustainable development worldwide.

Vision
Motivated by our concern for the world’s most vulnerable children, families and communities, PCI envisions a world where abundant resources are shared, communities are able to provide for the health and well-being of their members, and children and families can achieve lives of hope, good health and self-sufficiency.

Strong Roots
In 1961, a young doctor from San Diego volunteering at a Tijuana clinic saved the lives of two small children who were dying of pneumonia. This experience led Dr. James Turpin to found PCI and forever change the lives of millions of children and families around the world by providing health and hope to those most in need. Since then, the focus of the organization has remained true to its founder: PCI works in vulnerable communities to improve health and create long-term change by helping people help themselves. For 50 years, thousands of dedicated individuals and groups have worked to make this vision a reality.

  • PCI is working to study the patterns of sex #trafficking in #Tijuana, and how it might address the need with a trans-border (U.S.) solution. Additionally, it hosts community information nights to show the movie, Indoctrinated: The Grooming of Children into Prostitution, and featuring talks from a #SanDiego sex trafficking survivor.
