Founded by Jeffrey P. Koplan and international colleagues in 2001, the International Association of National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI) connects and strengthens the government agencies responsible for public health. IANPHI improves the world's health by leveraging the experience and expertise of its member institutes to build robust public health systems. Its Emory University Office, in partnership with its membership Secretariat in Helsinki, Finland, leads capacity building projects in over 35 countries around the world. It is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other donors, its 84 members, and private-sector partners.
