The American International Health Alliance (AIHA) is an international nonprofit organization working to advance global health through locally driven, locally owned, and locally sustainable health systems strengthening (HSS) and human resources for health (HRH) interventions. AIHA provides technical assistance through comprehensive, integrated, and volunteer-driven partnerships and initiatives that help low- and middle-income countries build institutional and human resource capacity to create a strong foundation for delivering high-quality, inclusive health services. We are unlike many organizations that provide technical assistance because our partnerships and programs often rely on the commitment of professional time and energy provided by volunteers on both sides. Most of our programs are based on peer-to-peer relationships among healthcare providers and policymakers who collaborate to find solutions to health services delivery issues that are technologically and economically sustainable in the host country. AIHA’s model presumes that healthcare professionals abroad are more receptive to new ideas and more willing to make changes when they work together with colleagues who face the same challenges in their day-to-day practice. Consequently, we engage health and allied professionals, governments, and community leaders to introduce new models of care, train and mentor healthcare providers, and strengthen professional healthcare associations and regulatory bodies.
