Our Work

Advancing global health starts with building the capacity of communities and countries to address the public health problems they face. That’s why PHI focuses on training, supporting and advising providers, policymakers and advocates from different settings in all regions of the world. We offer technical expertise to advance comprehensive solutions to a broad range of global health challenges, with a particular focus on addressing the health needs of marginalized communities. We convene multi-sector partners, advocate for policies that support health, sustainable development and reproductive rights, build the capacity of local health systems, organizations and advocates, and research reproductive health prevention strategies, factors driving the spread of HIV/AIDS, global patterns of tobacco use and more.

PHI Priority

Building Health Equity

PHI's Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) builds the capacity of global health professionals and organizations to make inclusive, collaborative and innovative contributions to today's health challenges, including malaria, COVID, TB, gender inequities and more. Fellows work with Ministries of Health, private companies, NGOs and academic institutions, while participating in customized learning and mentoring to enhance their knowledge and skills. STAR prioritizes diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility and has incorporated “masked recruitment” to address unconscious biases in the hiring process—resulting in significant increases in diversity among hires.
