National Network of Public Health Institutes
The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) was formally established in 2001 to recognize and enhance the work of the nation’s public health institutes. NNPHI has 37 member institutes in 28 states. NNPHI members are primarily independent 501(c)3 organizations; some are university affiliated and there are several provisional and affiliate members. NNPHI offices are located in New Orleans and Washington, DC.
The NNPHI mission is to support national public health system initiatives and strengthen public health institutes to promote multi-sector activities resulting in measurable improvements of public health structures, systems, and outcomes. NNPHI’s vision is innovation-fostering public health institutes across the nation collaborating to improve population health.
NNPHI has a history of collaborating with its member public health institutes and a wide range of national, state and local partners to support public health initiatives. These initiatives address health equity, public health performance improvement, evaluation and research, health policy, evidence-based public health practice, workforce and leadership development.
