About AHI...

 

Asian Health Institute (AHI) is a Japanese non-governmental voluntary organization (NGO) committed to supporting the development of well-being and well-doing of marginalized people in Asia.   Founded in 1980 by Japanese medical leaders,who had served in several Asian countries.
They realized that curative medical care alone was not a lasting solution to grassroots health problems. Instead, they saw a more effective and sustainable approach in training local leaders to promote community-based action for health and development.   Since its establishment, AHI has been working for human resource development through participatory training programs, based on its philosophy of “Sharing for Self-Help”.     These training programs offer opportunities throughout Asia for middle-level community-based health and development workers to enhance their capabilities as:

 

1) community organizers and trainers in health and development issues;

 

2) facilitators for people's organizations (POs) and local governments (GO) towards participatory local governance; and

 

3) middle-level managers to empower their own organizations through participatory management.

 

Moreover, AHI promotes ongoing networking among former participants and their organizations to strengthen overall NGO effectiveness in responding to the health needs of the people.
