For more than 30 years, Health Alliance International (HAI) has worked in solidarity with ministries of health in order to build the capacity of countries to lead their own, effective public sector health systems. From the very beginning, we have done what many global health NGOs have neglected to do: focus on strengthening public sector health systems by listening to and serving the needs articulated by countries and advocating for policies and practices that promote social, economic, and health equity.
HAI’s alliances with ministries of health improve government capacity to measure performance, improve quality, and expand the scope of their services. In every country, HAI’s in-country staff work within Ministry offices and are considered key partners in designing, implementing and evaluating health programs. As both an independent nonprofit and an active center of the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health, HAI is recognized globally as an organization that combines a service ethic and solidarity with the critical thinking and rigor of its academic base.
