Who We Are
The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) is a center in the University of Washington's Department of Global Health and has 10 offices and some 600 worldwide staff in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the United States who work with partner organizations to support the development of health work forces and health delivery systems.
I-TECH is a global network that supports the development of a skilled health work force and well-organized national health delivery systems, in order to provide effective prevention, care, and treatment of infectious disease in the developing world.
I-TECH is housed in the UW Department of Global Health, which employs over 300 faculty, fellows, and research scientists in global health research and training and focuses on identification and evaluation of health problems and health inequities in underserved populations, and on the development and implementation of innovative interventions that can dramatically reduce disease burden.
