PHF has been always in contact and collaboration with the international health development partners, international and national NGOs, by sharing its experiences, having joint planning and implementation, exchanging expertise.
The Foundation has mobilized its own financial resources, from internal and external donors, for implementing the health development activities. The foundation has negotiated with national and international agencies, private foundations, private entrepreneurs, regional network partners and alliances, etc., to get finance on initial capital and current outlays, and also find various ways and means to get more resources for health development activities.
