What We Do

IANPHI spearheads improvements in national public health systems through a peer-assistance evaluation, grant support and efforts focused on NPHI advocacy, collaboration, and sustainability. 

IANPHI provides direct funding to governments in low-resource countries to build and strengthen national public health capacity through development of NPHIs. IANPHI's grant portfolio includes three types of projects: 
  • NPHI-to-NPHI evaluation of your institute's operations and individual programs or planning for new programs.
  • Long-term engagements to establish new NPHIs or transform existing institutes into more comprehensive NPHIs
  • Targeted assistance to boost capacity of NPHIs
IANPHI helps all of the world’s NPHIs by advocating for strong and well-supported national public health institutes. IANPHI facilitates alliances among NPHIs and with strategic partners to catalyze support and investments for national public health systems. IANPHI also develops benchmarks and tools that countries, NPHIs, and peer-assistance teams use to assess, develop, and improve NPHIs and optimize delivery of core public health functions. 

IANPHI is a professional association for NPHI directors, fostering a new community of public health leadership dedicated to knowledge sharing, collaboration, and cooperation. By linking the assets and leadership of NPHIs around the world, IANPHI provides a platform for collective action and shared solutions in addressing public health challenges and opportunities. The collective history, knowledge, and expertise of our member institutes are a powerful force for transforming public health around the world.
