Public Health Improvement Initiatives Internationale

The root cause of inequalities lies in…

equality of thoughts, behaviours and actions.

Public Health Improvement Initiatives Internationale (PHIII) is a University of Eastern Finland spin-off and Karelia University of Applied Sciences supported development organisation. PHIII is an assembly of multi-country expertise for advisory, research and future-ready global health cadre development in public health economics, health policy and health systems. We dynamically endeavour in creating local expertise with global perspectives for interconnected development. The in-house expertise of PHIII continuously generates and disseminates evidences for health policy and health systems development with focus on the former Soviet Union (FSU) countries. PHIII is committed to be a conduit for dissemination of best practices in evidence informed health policy development, implementation and monitoring amongst FSU nations.


“To position PHIII as a future-ready knowledge partner for multilateral organisations, country governments and higher academic institutions towards population health development in developmental economies of the world”
