Workforce Development

A strong, diverse public health workforce is critical to meeting the world’s pressing health challenges and addressing inequities. When health and public health professionals look like and come from the communities they serve, patients receive better care and experience better health outcomes. PHI is creating a pipeline of dedicated public health professionals in California, across the United States and around the world, including finding creative ways to bring those traditionally overlooked in public health careers into the workforce with meaningful salaries and effective training. We build and staff programs that connect community members and youth with opportunities to enter into health professions, while also providing ongoing training, wrap-around services, mentoring and support—helping to create sustainable, community-based expertise. Our partners include public health and community stakeholders, schools, health employers, community development institutions, local health departments, government agencies including USAID and CDC, and more. Together, we’re building the public health workforce of tomorrow and bolstering community power today.
