"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."

"I was present at the launch of HIFA in Mombasa in 2006 and I am inspired by HIFA's vision, sacrifice, clarity of goals, focus, and humility. Thank God it all paid off. HIFA now has the greatest collection of world health experts. The practical impact of the group is superb. HIFA remains a stream where health information freely flows. I thank God for touching millions of lives through this singular dream. I can't stop talking of HIFA anywhere, anytime. Kudos!"

"My love for global health and public health started with me joining the HIFA. The more I promote the HIFA vision the more I feel to be an advocate for Health. HIFA will expose you to a lot of information which will deepen your understanding of how Health works and what can be done to improve it. Healthcare information saves lives - I cant refrain myself from telling you that you'd love to be part of this family :)."
