PCI was founded in the U.S./Mexico border region in 1961, by a young doctor from San Diego who saved the lives of two small children that were dying of pneumonia in a small Tijuana clinic. 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, opportunity, and support to those most in need.
