Mission

Founded in 2009 with the broad goal of contributing to the improvement of health in populations worldwide, the International Prevention Research Institute (iPRI) aims to increase prospects for prevention through training, education, prevention research and research into causes worldwide with a focus on low and lower-middle income countries.

iPRI strives to answer three critical questions:

  • Is it healthy?
  • Is it safe?
  • Is it beneficial?
