The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) is a center in the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health within the School of Public Health. I-TECH comprises a global network, operating in more than 20 countries, that is committed to building long-term capacity in health systems strengthening; human resources for health; and targeted, data-driven interventions and research that are responsive to local needs. Our unique approach to sustainability and capacity building, through training and research, creates a strong foundation for contextually appropriate health programs. Our programs effectively tackle emerging health threats and address national health priorities to achieve high quality, compassionate, and equitable health care.
Most of I-TECH’s projects are organized to follow our Partnership Model, which describes a project cycle in which sustainability and transition to local ownership are key project outcomes.
I-TECH works primarily in the following technical areas:
- Health Systems Strengthening
- Health Workforce Development
