How can we more effectively meet the information needs of citizens, health professionals and policymakers?
We invite you to join HIFA (Healthcare Information For All) - a growing global health movement working in collaboration with the World Health Organization, Geneva. HIFA has more than 16,000 members (health workers, librarians, publishers, researchers, policymakers and others) committed to the progressive realisation of a world where every person has access to the information they need to protect their own health and the health of others. HIFA members have experience and knowledge which they can use to bring clarity to challenging questions around global health issues in general and healthcare information issues in particular.
We have about 5000 members in Africa, 5000 in Europe, and 6000 in the rest of the world, across 176 countries. We interact on five forums in three languages (English, French, and Portuguese). We are launching HIFA in Spanish later this year in collaboration with WHO and PAHO.
Our website is www.hifa.org and membership is free. Join here: www.hifa.org/joinhifa
