Support the HIFA Appeal!

Help secure a future where people are no longer dying due to lack of healthcare information

"The work of HIFA is critical on our journey towards Health for All. HIFA is a really important platform through which we can share information and tools, connect with each other, support each other, and move far more rapidly to strengthen health services globally, especially in low- and middle-income countries. I support HIFA and encourage others to do the same." Dr Tracy Eastman, Director of Practical Approach to Care Kit, University of Cape Town & British Medical Journal

A message from Dr Neil Pakenham-Walsh, HIFA founder and coordinator:

Please consider making a financial contribution to HIFA as we urgently need to raise funds to manage our increasing workload in 2021. 

HIFA now has 20,000 members interacting on six forums in four languages. Key achievements have included:

  • Resolution passed unanimously by the World Medical Association in support of the vision of Healthcare Information For All (thereby uniting doctors worldwide around our common goal)
  • Completion of a systematic review on the information needs of primary health workers
  • Two major discussions on the new WHO Guideline on Community Health Workers 
  • Continued expansion of our multilingual forums, including our newest forum, HIFA-Spanish (all in collaboration with WHO).

We have done all this - and more - thanks to your support. 

We now urgently need your help to secure our work in 2021 and beyond.

Can you help? With your personal (or organisational) donation, we would be one step closer to achieving Healthcare Information For All.

Thank you.

"HIFA is increasingly highly regarded and profoundly important. It is very unlikely that we would be as aware and informed as we are about the different developments and upcoming challenges without the vital network that HIFA has become."
