WE’RE WORKING TO MAKE HEALTH CONTAGIOUS.

HIPHI is a hub for health, bringing community-based organizations, government, academia, foundations and business together to improve the quality of life for the people of Hawai‘i.

Building healthier communities requires collaboration on a variety of issues that impact health, including transportation, education, access to healthy food, and economic opportunities. And collaboration is what we do best.

See what’s happening on your island…

Are you a like-minded non-profit in need of help?

We know that there can be serious obstacles to get a cause, campaign or program off the ground. At HIPHI, we have years of experience and can help in a number of ways, from fiscal sponsorship and management to meeting and conference planning. Contact us to find out more.

We listen, learn and fight for policy change that communities want.

Perspectives on Community Health - Come 'Glean' with Us! @ Malama Kaua‘i

Join us as we harvest delicious local fruit on the north shore of Kaua‘i for after-school programs and food pantries. Bring water, a hat, sunscreen and a bag to take some fruit home for yourself.

The Village Harvest Project is an award-winning collaborative partnership between Malama Kaua‘i and the Kaua‘i Master Gardener Program. Village Harvest utilizes CTAHR’s 4 acres of productive fruit orchards, Malama Kauai’s Community Farm, and community donors to harvest, pack and deliver fresh produce to schools, after-school programs, and food banks across Kaua‘i.

Since September 2014, Village Harvest has been able to collect and deliver over 33,000 pounds of fruit to 9 different schools, after school programs, and food banks with the help of over 600 volunteer hours.

Children's Environmental Health Symposium @ Ala Moana Hotel (Garden Lanai) | Honolulu | Hawaii | United States

The Hawaii Department of Health and Western States Environmental Health Specialty Unit along with partners Environmental Protection Agency Region 9, the University of Hawaii, School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene, and the John A. Burns School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, are sponsoring a free one day symposium focusing on children’s environmental health risks. The symposium will increase knowledge of:
1) environmental burdens commonly found in children;
2) how these burdens can impact children’s health; and
3) what local professionals can do to address children’s environmental health problems in the communities they work with.

Every penny you contribute stays right here in Hawai‘i.

The tobacco industry spends more than $25 million each year in Hawai‘i marketing their products to kids while sugary drink manufacturers pay fitness bloggers and researchers to promote diets that include soda. These industries care about one thing and one thing only: profit. That’s where we come in. We, and our coalitions, work every day to stop them in their tracks. We shine a light on their bad acts and we fight for policies that promote health for all Hawai’i residents and tourists. Your gift allows us to do more… and it is tax-deductible!
