We live in a world where challenges are inextricably linked and so must be the solutions.
Improving lives in sustainable, measurable ways is possible only when we connect ideas, resources and people who have a stake in the issues affecting their communities. Through customized responses that address multiple aspects of people's lives, we are able to exponentially increase the impact of our work.
Our name reflects our approach to complex human development challenges. Integrated. Customized. Connected. We deliver expert, thoughtful responses to these challenges. Our staff regularly contribute to national policies and guidelines, publish in leading journals and provide technical guidance to major development partners. Even when interventions require a narrow focus, we begin with the big picture in mind — thinking holistically in our search for solutions.
Our impact is amplified through the synergy of partnerships. The "360" in our name symbolizes our inclusive approach to sustainable success, attained only when we partner with governments, civil society organizations, the private sector and the communities we serve. Our financial, operational and program management systems provide assurance to funding partners and reinforce the capabilities of local implementing partners.
We study, test and evaluate. We gather evidence and generate reliable data. The result? A deep understanding of the people and communities we serve and interventions most likely to deliver the greatest impact. It is the science of improving lives.
We bring together experts across multiple disciplines to address ever-evolving human development challenges. FHI 360 hosts events in the United States and around the world, where speakers examine findings from research and practice in the areas of health sciences, education, social and economic development, and gender.
