HIFA Voices database

The HIFA Voices database (hifavoices.org) brings together the experiential knowledge of HIFA members (more than 15,000 professionals in 175 countries) to better understand the healthcare information needs of different users in different contexts, and how these needs can be more effectively addressed.

The HIFA Voices database also includes citations of relevant health information sciences literature to better understand information needs and how to meet them. 

"As HIFA Voices evolves over the coming years, it has the potential to become a leading source of practical and experiential data to help inform future international guidelines by WHO and other organisations, on a range of issues relating to health systems, human resources for health, and availability and use of health information."
