International Academy for Design & Health (IADH)

The International Academy for Design & Health (IADH) is a global non-profit organization with an interdisciplinary knowledge community dedicated to the stimulation and application of research concerning the interaction between design, health, science, culture, and economics. Founded in 1997, the aim of the IADH is to provide a highly visible global forum for promoting an ongoing international exchange of research findings among scientists, designers, health professionals, industry, and Ministries of Health worldwide.

Fundamental to the Academy's work is the development of a theoretical understanding of the importance of salutogenic design and its application in the design of physical environments that prevent disease and support and promote human health, well-being, and quality of life. The Academy offers an inclusive environment for collaborating with its government, academic, and professional partners around the world. For more information, visit
