To promote the health and well-being of Hispanic Americans by reducing the incidence, burden, and impact of health problems in this community

For every Hispanic American to have the opportunity and ability to achieve good health and a high quality of life

The Institute for Hispanic Health (IHH) works in close partnership with NCLR Affiliates, government partners, private funders, and other Hispanic-serving organizations to deliver quality health interventions.
