The Public Health Institute is committed addressing emerging global and national public health issues, and tackling the most significant public health challenges of our time. Often, public health agencies and organizations have expertise, experience, and community trust, but are stymied by a lack of resources. Health initiatives emerging from the private sector, including corporate philanthropic efforts, can bring extensive resources and access to innovative new medical technologies—but may lack experience in public health best practices and effectively reaching communities for greatest impact.
PHI’s multi-disciplinary team provides specialized expertise—from creating new partnerships, to navigating relationships between governmental, private sector and non-profit teams, to building community consensus and will for healthy changes—all based on best practices and science-based strategies. We bring decades of experience in navigating public-private partnerships, which have resulted in demonstrable health improvements to communities across the world.
Our expertise includes:
- Leadership development programs: PHI experts can work with you to build a network of local public and private health professionals, equipped with knowledge of corporate philanthropy, public health and public-private partnerships, and the interface between the corporate and nonprofit sectors.
- Program development and management: We are available to work with private partners to design science-based public health initiatives, including programs to reduce and prevent chronic and communicable diseases, advance adolescent sexual and reproductive health, and support the implementation of new technological innovation within the public health sphere, and more.
- Community mobilization and engagement: PHI staff bring years of on-the-ground community connections spanning the globe. We also have significant expertise in building coalitions and networks with local community residents and organizations to design and advance health initiatives.
- Capacity building and technical assistance: We provide customized trainings and workshops, both web-based and in-person, to help support staff and coalitions in their public-private partnership endeavors. PHI staff is also available to provide ongoing or as-needed technical assistance and support.

USAID Global Health Fellows Program II
Here's How We're Making a Difference
Integrating Corporate Expertise into Global Health
PHI's Global Health Fellows Program II (GHFP-II) partners with PYXERA Global to link corporate expertise into USAID’s strategy to create new synergies to address complex global health challenges.
PYXERA Global places highly-skilled private sector employees in short-term pro bono international assignments to further advance progress in key areas of global health. This utilizes the knowledge of the corporate volunteer and allows for cross sector perspectives to be shared and innovation inspired. To date, PYXERA Global has helped GHFP-II assess and execute nearly 30 projects in maternal and child health, family planning, reproductive health and more.
Launching an Award-Winning Website to Advance Health Around the World
In 2017, the new, interactive Global Health Leaders website received two prestigious awards: the Horizon Interactive Award for Advocacy/Non-Profit websites and an "Award of Excellence" from the 2017 Communicator Awards.
The website features testimonies from the fellows on the blog, as well as video interviews from PHI CEO Mary Pittman and Medtronic Foundation Senior Operations Manager Wade Jones. The website is meant to engage other, fellowship and leadership development programs and future corporate partners as GHL continues to grow and expand their work to prevent noncommunicable chronic diseases across the globe.
