Our Mission

The ICFHI was established in order to support national and local efforts at improving the health care delivery system to uplift the health status of the Filipino people, particularly those who are most in need --- the urban and rural poor and ethnic minorities.  One way by which it can contribute is to train potential leaders, inculcating in them the needed human values, in tandem with the development of their technical and managerial competence.
