Dear Neil and colleagues
The work of HIFA is critical on our journey towards Health for All. I'm sure HIFA members will agree that this is a really important platform through which we can share information and tools, connect with each other, support each other, and move far more rapidly to strengthen health services globally, especially in LMICs. Its "Giving Tuesday" today. Please lets do whatever we can - as individuals and organisations - to support HIFA and ensure that this platform continues and grows. I pledge to do so by sending a donation - today - right now. Lets also challenge ourselves to seek out routes to sustainable longer term funding for HIFA - everyone will benefit.
