About IntraHealth International

The future of global health starts here.


IntraHealth International is a global health nonprofit that has worked in over 100 countries since 1979. We improve the performance of health workers and strengthen the systems in which they work so that everyone everywhere has the health care they need to thrive.

Because next-generation challenges in global health call for new and extraordinary partnerships, IntraHealth joins forces with governments, businesses, technologists, artists, activists, and more to cultivate local solutions with lasting results. IntraHealth’s programs generate long-term social and economic impact to keep communities around the world healthy, strong, and prosperous.

We focus on health workers. Without them, health care doesn't happen.

Our mission is to improve the performance of health workers and strengthen the systems in which they work.

Our vision is that everyone everywhere has the health care they need to thrive.

Our Story

IntraHealth was born in 1979 as Intrah, the Program for International Training in Health, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. From the beginning, our focus was on health workers and their role in improving the health of women and their families. IntraHealth incorporated as an independent nonprofit organization in 2003. In 2017, IntraHealth and DAI joined forces to amplify their development impact. IntraHealth is now a strategic nonprofit affiliate of DAI Global Health. IntraHealth has a staff of over 500 employees working in 37 countries in Africa, the Americas, and Asia.
