Emory and Finland Public Health Institute to build global health network with $20M Gates grant

tional public health focus or with NPHIs in their early stages of development. Expertise and support from IANPHI will help fledgling organizations build basic public health infrastructure and progress toward becoming fully functioning NPHIs.

IANPHI was formally launched in January 2006 with 39 founding members and a one-year planning grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The members include the National Institute for Communicable Diseases in South Africa, the Chinese CDC, the United Kingdom's Health Protection Agency, the National Institute for Medical Research in Nigeria, the Osvaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) in Brazil, and the National Public Health Institute of Mexico. With the five-year implementation grant from the Gates Foundation, the members will continue to expand the association and implement their shared vision of an integrated global network of strong and capable NPHIs taking action to address critical public health challenges.

"The five-year funding from the Gates Foundation represents a strong commitment from the world's preeminent health foundation to IANPHI and its goals of improving global health by developing leadership, increasing collaboration and community, and expanding healthcare capacity," said Michael M.E. Johns, MD, CEO of Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center, executive vice president for health affairs and chairman of Emory Healthcare. "The Gates Foundation support also distinguishes IANPHI as the inaugural program associated with Emory University's new Global Health Institute."
