"I found the CHIFA Desk Officer role very interesting and rewarding. I got to work on a range of projects within a very supportive team, while having the opportunity to take initiative on new projects and approaches. I gained valuable experience and skills in coordination, management, leadership, and communication, which have helped to further my public health career, and I had the chance to make some great contacts. I enjoyed working with people from such a wide range of countries and backgrounds, and getting more involved in an organisation that does such important work on engaging global discussions to advocate for and work towards increased access to child healthcare information and child rights. I would definitely recommend applying for this position!"

"HIFA is an extremely important platform for WHO/IBP [Implementing Best Practices Initiative] because it offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and information which can then inform our work on how best to implement and scale up family planning interventions. We are interested in understanding not only What works, but also How interventions work, Who they work for, and Why interventions don't work."

"It is really extraordinary to see how HIFA has grown and how wide its reach has become. I think it is the most important discussion forum in the area of health information and health more generally in LMICs, and makes a critical contribution to linking health workers, health researchers and health managers across the world. Few forums are able to do this so successfully. Congratulations on this achievement."
