The AIGHD consists of a consortium of partners that are committed to the realization of the institute’s vision and mission and of a physical organization that supports this consortium in the selection, preparation and execution of its activities. The AIGHD does not aim to replace existing organizations, or programs of its constituents. It will function as a framework and a hub, seeken to strengthen and forge synergies between activities that contribute to the mission of AIGHD.
The consortium is divided in two groups: the Constituents and the Parent Institutions. In addition there are looser forms of collaboration with other institutes or organizations.

The Executive Board is overseen by the Supervisory Board, which consists of representatives of the Parent Institutions.
The Scientific leadership of the AIGHD rests with the Program Steering Committee, which is chaired by the Executive Scientific Director of the Institute, and holds representatives of major AIGHD Constituents. A Scientific Review Board consisting of people with core competencies will review scientific research proposals. The Board may include additional experts, depending on the proposal under review. AIGHD will also receive advice from an External Advisory Board.
