Mission Statement

NDRI-USA’s mission is to build relationships and bridge the gap between research and practice in the public health arena to ensure the advancement of state-of-the-art techniques, evidence- based and promising practices, and supports for non-physician health and human services providers and other practitioners. This is accomplished by fostering relationships at the federal, state, local, international, philanthropic and private sector levels, with the goal of reducing health and social disparities by creating sustainable change through curriculum development, learning interventions targeted to health and human services providers, training-of-trainers, technical assistance and capacity building, as well as needs assessment, research and evaluation.


NDRI-USA, Inc. has been in existence as an affiliate of National Development Research Institutes, Inc (a not-for-profit social and behavioral science research and training organization with an over 40 year history of public health service) since 1991.

Re-instated as a separate 501(c)(3) in January of 2013, NDRI - USA, Inc. continues the long tradition of work begun by its founding organization as a leader on public health issues such as Substance Abuse, HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis and other STIs, Mental Health, Health Care Reform, Cultural Competence, and Criminal Justice problem solving courts. NDRI-USA’s cadre of senior staff trainers has for more than 20 years worked with health and human services providers who service traditionally hard-to-reach and vulnerable populations in the New York Metropolitan region, nationally and internationally, earning a reputation for providing innovative and cutting edge training.

Interventions are provided via various mediums including in-person trainings, training-of-trainers (ToT), seminars, regional and national conferences, webinars, narrated slide sets, written materials, and self- guided on-line training interventions. Services include provider needs assessment, technical assistance (TA), curriculum development (face-to-face, webinar & on-line format), and training evaluation. Our experienced staff comes from diverse backgrounds and orientations, offering subject matter expertise on a wide array of topics and versatility in our approach to training and technical assistance.
