Dr. Paulo Ivo Garrido, MD, MPH

Dr. Garrido will share a sense of reality on the ground and give a unique perspective on Alma-Ata from the 1970s, when Mozambique and other countries were creating their own pathways to primary health care (PHC). As a physician and as former Minister of Health, Dr. Garrido offers a critical perspective on current approaches to global health by high-income countries, donor dependence and donor-funded vertical programs in low income countries.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote policies and support programs that strengthen government primary health care and foster social, economic, and health equity for all. Our vision is a just world that promotes health and well-being, including universal access to quality health care.

Our History

Health Alliance International began in 1987 as a US-based international solidarity organization committed to supporting the public sector provision of health care for all.  Over 35 years, HAI conducted programs in 17 countries, with flagship programs in Mozambique, Côte d'Ivoire, and Timor-Leste.

Our Evolution

In line with HAI’s commitment to support and strengthen local public health leadership, as of October 2021, HAI fully transitioned global operations and active programs to locally-based, locally-led NGOs. Learn more about this shift toward local autonomy and equity in global health.
