History

For more than four decades, FHI 360 has delivered innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing human development challenges.


1971. We got our start at the University of North Carolina conducting research to develop safe and effective family planning methods.  


1986. We expanded our scope to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. 


1990. We established the FHI Foundation. The foundation is funded by proceeds from the sale of two for-profit companies spun off from FHI 360.  


2011. Family Health International and the Academy for Educational Development came together to create FHI 360. The new organization expanded our capabilities to include nutrition, education, economic development, civil society and other areas.  


FHI 360 programs combine evidence with on-the-ground experience to deliver innovative solutions with maximum efficiency and impact.
