…in the countries where we worked.
A core component of HAI’s approach is to build capacity within existing health care systems. This means investing in people at all levels, ensuring they have the necessary tools and skills to not only provide care, but also to improve it. In addition to a long history of providing on-site training and coaching in clinical skills and health data use and analysis, HAI partnered with local universities and public research institutes to embed research skills in local health systems. This leads to evidence-based systems improvements that can be tested, adjusted, and ultimately scaled-up in response to locally-identified priorities.
…in the field of global health.
From the moment we opened our doors, Health Alliance International was affiliated with the University of Washington. As educators, HAI/UW faculty transformed decades of experience in health research, program implementation, and advocacy into opportunities for problem-based learning for students in UW’s Department of Global Health. Outside of the classroom, HAI provided countless opportunities for UW students in the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, and Social Work to gain experience working in partnership with, and for the benefit of, health systems around the world.
Again and again, Health Alliance International has proven their commitment to public health training and education, both in the countries where they work and at the University of Washington. As a Center of the UW Department of Global Health, Health Alliance International is uniquely positioned to both implement and evaluate health system interventions, while simultaneously building the capacity of the next generation of public health leaders.
When HAI talks about CAPACITY BUILDING, we recognize the incredible knowledge, experience, and expertise that already exists in the countries where we work. Our role, then, is to bring our own skills and experience to the table as collaborators.

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.
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.
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.
