We started out small. Just a single project out of the medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We were called Intrah back then, the Program for International Training in Health.
And that’s what we did. We trained health workers.
Forty years later—and 741 staff members strong—we still do. But we do so much more now, too.
New outbreaks, new scientific discoveries, and new technologies have changed our field entirely. The way we train has transformed. The types of partnerships that drive development are evolving before our eyes.
It's clear that the old ways of doing development won’t necessarily light our path forward.
