Why Positive Health international?

We collaborate with Institute for Positive Health (iPH), founded in the Netherlands, where Positive Health was founded and has been embedded in a variety of domains over the past 10 years. There has been increasing interest in Positive Health outside the Netherlands, therefore Positive Health international (PHi) has been grounded to enable the movement worldwide.

We offer local and online training and implementation support for professionals, organisations and communities to apply Positive Health in daily practice in a variety of countries.

We believe in the significance of truly seeing and understanding each person's unique journey. With Positive Health international we want to recognize and empower people to live a purposeful and meaningful life.
