THE YEAR IN REVIEW: 2019 IN PICTURES 

HIPHI and partners propelled Hawaii’s public health agenda in 2019. Take a look at some of our highlights.

WE’RE WORKING TO MAKE HEALTH CONTAGIOUS.

HIPHI is a non-profit 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 opportunity. And collaboration is what we do best.

FLAVORS HOOK KIDS: Did you know that there are more than 15,000 flavors used in tobacco products to hook the next generation on nicotine?

We’re in the community!

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 visitors. Your gift allows us to do more… and it is tax-deductible!

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.
