Avenir Health, formerly Futures Institute, was founded in 2006 as a global health organization that works to enhance social and economic development by providing tools and technical assistance in policy, planning, resource allocation and evaluation. In particular, we focus on developing and implementing demographic, epidemiological and costing models for long-range planning to assist with setting goals, strategies, and objectives. We assist in both developing and implementing programs in HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, maternal health and other programming areas. We work with government agencies, foundations, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations around the world.
Areas of program concentration include family planning and reproductive health, maternal and child health, the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, and infectious diseases. With staff based in the United States and Africa, we work collaboratively with our in-country counterparts to improve policies and programs that address population issues, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases, and maternal and child health.
