National Network of Public Health Institutes Call for Proposals
Public health institutes (PHIs) are nonprofit organizations that work to improve the public’s health by fostering innovation, leveraging resources, and building partnerships across sectors. PHIs address current and emerging health issues by providing expertise in areas such as: Fiscal/Administrative Management; Population-Based Health Program Delivery; Health Policy Development, Implementation, and Evaluation; Training and Technical Assistance; Research and Evaluation; Health Information Services; Health Communications and Social Marketing and Convening/Partnering.
In August 2011, National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) embarked on a new set of projects that are designed to amplify PHI’s roles and impact on public health performance, policy, and evidence, as well as strengthen NNPHI’s own infrastructure and partnerships. This Call for Proposals seeks to enhance the performance of the public health system by supporting additional states with finding ways to use the PHI model to help address their pressing health challenges. This project will fund up to two states to advance efforts to establish a PHI that meets NNPHI’s definition, with an ultimate goal of improving these states’ public health systems.
