Company Description

FHI 360 (formerly Family Health International) is a nonprofit human development organization based in North Carolina. FHI 360 serves more than 70 countries and all U.S. states and territories. Established in 1971, the organization has long managed in projects relating to family planning and reproductive health. In 1986 the organization began a worldwide response to HIV/AIDS.[1][2][3] FHI’s research and programs also address malaria, tuberculosis, and other infectious and chronic diseases and international agencies, governments, foundations, research institutions, and individual donors.[4][5]

History
Other major sponsors of HIV/AIDS programs, as well as other health and development areas, include the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.[6][7] Increasingly, other governments, private foundations, and the private sector are partnering with FHI 360 to overcome the health and development challenges.[8][9]

In 2010, Family Health International rebranded itself with the new tagline, “The science of improving lives,” highlighting its commitment to empirical science empowering the world’s most vulnerable people. The name was simplified to FHI, reflecting a broadened scope that encompasses health and development as well as service to families, communities, and nations.[10]

In 2011, the teams of experts from Family Health International and Academy for Educational Development came together to create FHI 360. Staff includes experts in health, education, nutrition, environment, economic development, civil society, gender equality, youth, research and technology — creating a unique mix of capabilities to address today’s interrelated development challenges. FHI 360 serves more than 70 countries and all U.S. states and territories.
