Our Story

The IPI is a high impact collaboration initiative, which is an outcome of the 2019 Global Health Catalyst summit at the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. The initiative involves faculty from world leading institutions collaborating with industry, government leaders and other stakeholders to increase access to evidence-based medicines from plants. The vision is global health and wealth from medicinal plants which are an integral part of the healthcare system used by billions of people across the world. The Institute will provide the highest level of research,  validation or quality assurance of medicinal plant products to ensure doctors and populations have the evidence-based information needed for using any medicinal plants. Another critical part of the IPI is to promote education and knowledge, about the efficacy and safety of medicinal plants.
The IPI has become a growing movement and platform for collaboration involving stakeholders across the world. Please contact us for any information and join us in collaborations to advance global health and development leveraging medicinal plants
