Today’s public health systems are challenged to do more with fewer resources. Strengthening public health systems and services is fundamental to the Public Health Institute’s mission. PHI is available to build capacity through technical assistance support, providing organizational development tools and public health resources and consultation.
We provide ongoing and as-needed technical assistance for a wide variety of public health issue areas and technologies, including disease tracking and surveillance systems, community health and wellness programs and policy implementation, disability-related projects, telehealth initiatives, and more. For example, PHI has assisted health care organizations across the country in adopting technologies for improving chronic disease management and reducing hospital re-admissions. Our multi-disciplinary staff teams can provide you with customized technical support, with a focus on the unique needs of low-income communities and other marginalized groups.
Our expertise includes:
- Training curricula: Work with us to build capacity in our diverse focus area expertise, including environmental health, disabilities, chronic disease prevention, communicable disease prevention, global health, and more.
- Guides and resources: PHI provides many public health resources and toolkits, available on our website or through our programs. We also offer additional in-person or online trainings to support the utilization and application of our tools and resources.
- Collaboration support: Our staff can support your efforts in core community change processes, including a health in all policies approach, coalition-based collaboration, community engagement, asset-based community development, participatory strategic planning, and group facilitation.
- Translating data into action: We can help you increase data sharing for planning and program implementation by providing tools and platforms that allow public health practitioners to translate and act upon health data.
- Improving public health services: From cancer tracking registries to telehealth resources and tools, PHI staff are experts in many public health technologies and related fields.

Here's How We're Making a Difference
Changing the Way Governments Do Business
PHI's HiAP team has built the California Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task force from the ground up, partnering with twenty-two state agencies and working in collaboration with the California Department of Public Health to promote healthy and equitable communities. It is the most extensive HiAP initiative within a state government anywhere in the country. Our Health in All Policies guide has been viewed over 30,000 times, and is used as a primer by local, state, federal and international organizations seeking to institute a HiAP approach where they live.
Ensuring ADA Compliance
PHI's Pacific ADA Center provides over 37,000 technical assistance consultations annually to public and private stakeholders in the western U.S. on ADA compliance. The Center has also trained thousands of public and private sector hiring managers and supervisors on disability awareness and reasonable accommodation options for disabled employees, which has increased hiring and retention of individuals with disabilities.
After consulting with the Pacific ADA Center, a corporation that operates tens of thousands of chain restaurants changed its national policy so that customers with disabilities no longer encountered accessibility barriers such as narrow doorways and restricted space in dining areas.
Protecting the Rights of Girls and Youth
PHI’s Let Girls Lead provides technical assistance and training in policy advocacy, as well as seed funding, to African and Latin American champions for girls’ rights and health.
Let Girls Lead alumni have become powerful policy advocates and contributed to important victories, including passage of the national Children’s Law in Liberia, ratification of a national treatment protocol for sexual violence survivors in Guatemala and creation of a national advocacy network to eliminate child marriage in Malawi and Guatemala. It’s estimated that the work of Let Girls Lead has touched 7 million girls around the globe.
