Public Health Institute (PHI)

The Public Health Institute (PHI) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting health, well-being and quality of life for people throughout California, across the nation and around the world. As one of the largest and most comprehensive public health organizations in the nation, we are at the forefront of research and innovations to improve the efficacy of public health statewide, nationally and internationally.

For 40 years, PHI’s philosophy of public health has acknowledged the complex web of factors that contribute to problems like cancer, poor nutrition, violence, asthma or AIDS, and has recognized the integral role that all institutions and sectors play in promoting healthy choices and creating healthy environments. PHI’s programs include both inspiring leaders and surprising teams that involve the diverse expertise of communities. From health officials to grassroots organizers, and marketing experts to nurses and even race car drivers, our programs consistently demonstrate that everyone has a role to play in ensuring the public’s health.
