Many of us have been highly impressed by the work of organisations such as Medical Aid Films, Global Health Media Project, SAWBO and others involved in the production of video health content. With this in mind, the Mobile HIFA Working Group (which is dedicated to issues of mobile phone-based healthcare information for citizens, parents and children) carried out a survey of video content producers.
Dr Soumyadeep Bhaumik gave this Powerpoint presentation at the Cochrane Colloquium in Seoul, South Korea, 23-27 October 2016, on behalf of the Evidence-Informed Policy and Practice working group. The presentation highlights some of the key points emerging from the HIFA thematic discussion on Evidence-Informed Country-Level Health Policymaking.
From 19th September to 21 October 2016, the HIFA Project on Health Partnerships hosted a thematic discussion on health partnerships as defined and supported by THET: 'A health partnership is an on-going collaboration between health institutions in high income countries and those in low and middle income countries.' There was some discussion also on HIFA-French and HIFA-Zambia.
We are delighted to announce that HIFA have joined the International Confederation of Midwives, Commonwealth Nurses & Midwives Federation and WaterAid in campaigning for quality healthcare for all through water, sanitation and hygiene in all health facilities.
