Subject: Universal access to reliable healthcare information: Your voice will help shape the future of healthcare worldwide

Dear [Name],

Lack of timely access to reliable healthcare information results in countless deaths and avoidable suffering every day. Reliable information saves lives. Misinformation destroys lives.

Healthcare Information For All (HIFA.org) is leading a global survey on how to accelerate progress towards universal access to reliable healthcare information, in official relations with the World Health Organization. The survey is available in ten languages.

We invite everyone to complete the survey: patients, health workers, publishers, library and information professionals, policymakers, knowledge brokers, researchers, the general public… The findings will help inform action by WHO, HIFA and partners towards universal access to reliable healthcare information. The survey is open until 30 Septemebr and takes 5 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey now and forward this URL widely to your contacts! www.hifa.org/survey2023

Best wishes, Neil
