If any members would like to share how the Global Health Nursing & Midwifery community may have helped you in your practice, and/or ideas for future collaboration, we would love to hear! Thank you!

Thank you Christina. I have joined the new Google group and look forward to interacting. I would also like to invite GHD N&M members to join HIFA. HIFA has 19k members with many nurses and midwives and we would welcome more. :-)

Here's a brief overview:
HIFA (Healthcare Information For All) is a dynamic global health community working in collaboration with the World Health Organization, with more than 19,000 members (health professionals, librarians, publishers, researchers, policymakers, human rights activists and others) in 178 countries, working to improve the availability and use of reliable healthcare information, especially in low- and middle-income countries where lack of information can contribute to indecision, delay, misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment and consequent morbidity and mortality. HIFA's members interact on 6 global discussion forums in 4 languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish). Website Join here:

We look forward to cross-fertilising with the new Google group.

Best wishes, Neil
