IHI's Work Around the World

IHI’s mission is to improve health and health care worldwide. For more than 30 years, we have partnered with a growing community of visionaries, leaders, and front-line practitioners around the globe to spark bold, inventive ways to improve the health of individuals and populations. IHI also works with a wide range of entities — whether health care facilities, entire health care systems, or governments — to help them achieve significant results in quality, safety, and innovation.

We work globally because countries are interdependent in terms of health and health care, innovations can arise anywhere, and everyone has something to teach and something to learn. Around the world, IHI has an unprecedented opportunity to address global health and health care needs with our unique combination of methods and areas of focus: Patient Safety; Person- and Family-Centered Care; Triple Aim for Populations; Quality, Cost, and Value; and Improvement Capability. We have significant work underway in North America, Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific regions.

Attuned to the health needs of populations and patients in different parts of the world, we focus on matching priority regional health needs with IHI’s unique capabilities and areas of focus. We seek to help those who share the improvement journey with us to be successful in the changing health care environment — to work with partners around the world to shine a light on current performance and identify actions that lead to improvement. IHI strives to meet our partners where they are today and work side-by-side with them to chart the path to future success.
