The Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI) is a unique non-profit resource that:
- Strengthens health service systems and public policy
- Improves the environments and conditions where people live, work, learn, and play
- Builds organizational and community capacity
Started in 2009, IPHI is one of over 40 member public health institutes within the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI). Public health institutes work with public and private partners to strengthen public health and make systemic improvements. The focus is on community health (versus individual public health). This approach helps all people access the conditions and resources needed to live healthy, happy lives. IPHI is the official public health institute serving the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.
