Every human being has a right to health and health care

Why Hai?

For 35 years, Health Alliance International served as both a nonprofit organization and a Center of the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health designing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based improvements to public sector health care delivery systems around the globe.  But, that’s not why the HAI mission, model, and approach matter.

At HAI, we believe that engaging in global health should be an act of SOLIDARITY, not charity.  That’s why our model embraces partnership with existing national health programs. At HAI, we know that true health EQUITY is only achieved through universal access to quality, primary health care.  That’s why our approach focuses on improving the reach, quality, and responsiveness of health care systems. At HAI, we have seen the power of evidence in ACTION.  That’s why in 2021 we put into practice what we have always known to be true: the future of global health is local.

Why HAI?  Because we lead with our values.

OUR MODEL

Work in partnership with ministries of health.

For more than 30 years, HAI has worked side-by-side with ministries of health to strengthen the capacity of countries to lead their own, effective public sector health systems. Rather than parachuting in with our own ideas about what is needed, we build relationships, listen to and follow local priorities, and collaborate on programs that compliment and strengthen health care delivery through the existing public system.

OUR APPROACH

Strengthen public sector health systems.

At HAI, rather than providing healthcare separate from the public system, we worked to improve the effectiveness and responsiveness of existing national health systems that daily provide care to some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Community-to-Clinic Linkages, Skills-building for Health Providers, Care Integration, Data Systems Improvement, and Local Research Capacity Building are the 5 core elements of HAI’s approach.

OUR FUTURE

In line with HAI’s commitment to support and strengthen local public health leadership, we are proud to announce that, as of October 2021, HAI has fully transitioned our global operations and active programs to locally-based, locally-led NGOs.

Comité para a Saúde de Moçambique (CSM) in Mozambique and Asosiansaun Hamutuk Nasaun Saudavel (HAMNASA) in Timor-Leste are independent, locally-registered NGOs with a board, leadership, and staff that reflect the communities they serve. Both organizations embrace HAI’s public sector collaboration model and health system strengthening approach and will continue to work collaboratively with Ministries of Health, National Institutes of Health, and the University of Washington.
