HIFA Global Consultation (24) 1,159 respondents demonstrate support for HIFA and WHO as we implement the HIFA-WHO Collaboration Plan

30 January, 2024

Dear HIFA colleagues,

I would like to report a key finding from our global survey on Universal Access to Reliable Healthcare Information.

One of the questions in the survey was Q19: “HIFA seeks financial and technical partners to implement the HIFA-WHO collaboration plan in 2024 and beyond. Are you willing for HIFA to contact you to explore whether and how you can support our work?”

We can confirm that 1,159 respondents said YES to this question and provided their email address for us to contact them. This represents an amazing demonstration of future support for HIFA and WHO as we implement the HIFA-WHO Collaboration Plan in the coming months and years.

Our huge thanks to all those who have offered support. We look forward to connect with you all to see how we can take this forward together.

With deep gratitude for your support.

Neil, on behalf of the HIFA Steering Group
