Research & Evaluation

At HAI, our research didn’t just ask if something works, it asked how and for whom it works in practice.

As a Center of the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health, HAI served as a home institution for world leaders in implementation science and health systems research.  We used that standing and access to establish and disseminate evidence of programs and interventions that improve access to and quality of health care delivery. 

By making certain our research and evaluations were always conducted in partnership with Ministries of Health and local public research institutions, HAI research activities served the dual purpose of producing evidence and building local research capacity.  This strategy in line with HAI’s model ensured that data and analyses were already in the hands of those in a position to use them. 

Learn more about HAI’s expertise and track record in Implementation Science research and Program Evaluation.


Implementation Science is a systematic, scientific research approach that asks: How does this work in practice? Often, we think of Implementation Science as reducing the “know-do gap;” or, how to get “what we know works” to those who need it with the greatest speed, fidelity, efficiency, and coverage.

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.
