How organisations support HIFA

More than 250 health and development organisations worldwide have officially declared their support for the HIFA vision: “A world where every person and every health worker will have access to the healthcare information they need to protect their own health and the health of those for whom they are responsible”.

‘HIFA2015 achieves an extraordinary level of activity on minimal resources…’ HIFA2015 Evaluation Report, October 2011

A number of organisations also provide financial support (see below). We need to increase our funding in order to fully implement all components of our strategy and achieve the HIFA vision. Every little helps. Please donate
