IANPHI is also a professional association for NPHI directors, providing a platform for advocacy and collective action in addressing public health challenges and opportunities.

Founded in 2001 by Dr. Jeffrey P. Koplan and international colleagues, IANPHI is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other donors, its member institutions, and private-sector partners. IANPHI currently has 84 members and has supported projects in more than 35 countries.

Its Emory University Office, in partnership with its membership Secretariat in Helsinki, Finland, leads capacity building projects in over 35 countries around the world.
