Communicable Disease Prevention
Communicable disease is a wide-spread threat to the public’s health. Influenza and HIV/AIDS continue to be major drivers of domestic and global morbidity and mortality, and there are emerging threats such as multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.
PHI applies its expertise in research, evaluation, capacity building and technological innovation to combat communicable disease in the U.S. and around the world. PHI’s research helps develop effective, culturally competent prevention strategies for sexually transmitted diseases. PHI speeds the development and adoption of new technologies to prevent and control disease transmission. Its capacity-building projects increase appropriate treatment of diseases such as tuberculosis.
Supported by a diverse group of funders, PHI offers technical expertise on a broad range of communicable disease prevention issues.
Coalition Advancing Multipurpose Innovations
The Coalition Advancing Multipurpose Innovations (CAMI) is a global initiative that works to improve sexual and reproductive health prevention strategies, and to develop new multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) that would simultaneously prevent unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and other common reproductive infections. CAMI provides a platform for bio-tech developers, researchers, advocates and educators to coordinate efforts, spurring innovations that will empower women and adolescents and improve reproductive health.
Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA)
Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA) is a youth-led global network of over 7,271 young leaders and adult allies working on youth and HIV/AIDS in over 170 countries world-wide. GYCA's mission is to empower young leaders with the skills, knowledge, resources and opportunities they need to scale up HIV/AIDS interventions amongst their peers.
GOJoven is a multi-year youth development fellowship program focused on building the capacity of young leaders and their organizations in Mesoamerica to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health outcomes through reducing adolescent pregnancy, maternal mortality, and HIV/STI rates and strengthen the enabling environment to sustain this progress.
Health Intervention Projects for Underserved Populations
Health Intervention Projects for Underserved Populations (HIPUP) aims to improve substance abuse and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment research and services for underserved populations, such as transgender persons, Asian and Pacific Islander men who have sex with men (MSM) and substance users. Through collaboration with targeted community members, community-based organizations and public health departments, HIPUP, led by Dr. Tooru Nemoto, strives to have a significant impact on health promotion and human rights for nderserved communities locally and internationally.
