HPI is 20!

Over the years Health Partners International has grown from humble beginnings in founders’ front rooms to where we are today, an employee owned company and team of health systems experts, delivering effective programmes and dedicated to stronger, more equitable health care.

Friends and associates of HPI are coming together in a variety of ways this year to celebrate our achievements, values and pride in the people and partnerships that make our work possible.  Please help us celebrate!

20 years of strong partnerships, innovation and results.
20 years achieving dramatic results in reducing maternal and child mortality.
20 years of excellence in health systems strengthening.
20 Partners from 13 countries, key experts in their field – alongside 100 programme and HQ staff.


We are at an exciting time in our history with a new five year strategy, HPI Strategy 2020, providing the coordinates for a bright future and the launch of our collaboration with WISE Development, gender equality and women’s empowerment specialists.

We are proud to welcome WISE as part of the HPI Group. It’s a marriage that is of particular relevance today as gender equality and women’s empowerment are critical for global health, while barriers which prevent access to equitable health services for women will only be resolved if we tackle both governance, social inclusion and systems issues.
