Spotlight series: Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI)
Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is an independent foundation, which adopts a broad, integrative approach to public health, tailoring its endeavours to Indian conditions whilst also bearing relevance to countries facing similar challenges and concerns. It was launched in 2006 as a response to the limited institutional capacity in India for strengthening training, research and policy development in the area of Public Health. Here we look at PHFI as part of our Spotlight series that profiles research organisations based in developing countries.
