Our Values

Suggs HugThe Institute for Public Health Innovation is a values-driven public/private enterprise. While there are many values that our Board and staff share, we have identified four core values that guide all our work above all others:

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.
