Dear HIFA colleagues,
On behalf of the HIFA Steering Group, I am delighted to welcome BMJ as a new HIFA Supporting Organisation:
'BMJ started out over 170 years ago as a medical journal... Now, as a values-driven company and global brand, we work with the vision of doing what we can to contribute to creating a 'healthier world'. We do this by helping medical organisations and clinicians tackle today’s most critical healthcare challenges... Our expertise extends from publishing and medical education to clinical decision support and quality improvement to enhance day to day decision-making and healthcare delivery. However, our core objective remains unchanged. We continue to support medical professionals and institutions around the globe. BMJ advances healthcare worldwide by sharing knowledge and expertise to improve experiences and outcomes.'
There are now *317* Supporting Organisations worldwide committed to the HIFA vision: a world where every person and every health worker has access to the healthcare information they need to protect their own health and the health of others. The full list is available here: http://www.hifa.org/support/supporting-organisations
Every new HIFA Supporting Organisation moves us closer to our goal. If your organisation would like to express your support for HIFA, please apply here:
Supporting Organisations are under no obligation to provide financial support.
With thanks, Neil
