We are proud to be Hawaii’s public health institute. While HIPHI has continued to expand into new areas of work, our movement is inspired by our mission: to advance the health and wellness of the people and islands of Hawaiʻi.

By identifying and addressing underlying social structures that systematically distribute the social determinants of health unequally in society, we will continue working towards a Hawaiʻi where all people can achieve their best health.
