Institute for Public Health Innovation (IPHI) Logo


Our Mission

IPHI develops multi-sector partnerships and innovative solutions to improve the public’s health and well-being across the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Our work strengthens health systems and policy, enhances conditions that promote health, and builds community capacity to ensure equitable health opportunities for all.

Our Values


Health is complex and multi-dimensional. Rarely can one organization be successful in improving public health when acting independently. We are committed to working with a broad range of partners to share knowledge, maximize resources, and enhance effectiveness.

Equity and Social Justice

We are committed to fairness and the belief that everyone has the right and ability to achieve and maintain good health.  We share responsibility for contributing to environments and conditions in which all people have equal opportunities for health.


We think “outside the box” and strive to be creative, resourceful, and imaginative. We aim to inspire new solutions while also promoting existing strategies that are known to be effective.


Our commitment to honesty, respect, and reliability in our work and relationships is uncompromising. We are dedicated to high-quality work that honors our mission and those we partner with and serve.
