Physicians for Human Rights

About Physicians for Human Rights

A Nobel Peace Prize co-laureate, PHR was founded on the idea that health professionals, with their specialized skills, ethical duties, and credible voices, are uniquely positioned to prevent human rights violations. PHR’s investigations and expertise are used to document mass atrocities and other severe human rights violations including torture and sexual violence, advocate for persecuted health workers, and hold those who violate human rights accountable. PHR has worked in more than 60 countries and territories, including Afghanistan, Bahrain, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, El Salvador, Guatemala, Iran, Iraq, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Kenya, Libya, Mexico, Myanmar, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, and the United States.

PHR is poised for even greater growth and impact. As part of that strategy, we are excited to be recruiting energetic, proactive and resourceful team players with a passion for human rights. Our headquarters are located in New York City, and we maintain offices in Washington, DC and Boston.
