HIFA Survey: Update and thank you to our supporters

16 October, 2023

Dear all,

Our survey officially closed yesterday 15th October and we have had 2,382 responses!

We are making the survey accessible for another day or two for late responders: www.hifa.org/survey2023

I want to again thank all those who have helped make this happen:

Our individual members who have given their time to complete the survey

Our lead funders: National Institute for Health and Care Research, Elsevier Foundation (I hope to announce a third lead funder shortly)

Our personal donors: Vikram Patel, Geoff Royston (and others)

Our bronze sponsors (£100+): ecancer, Instituto Antonio Vidal, International League of Dermatological Societies, Enablement, CABI, International Primary Care Respiratory Group

Our technical partners: JBI, E4GDH, Digital Medic, Costello Medical, Digital Medic at Stanford University

In-kind support from: The BMJ, The Lancet, World Medical Association

This has been a tremendous collective effort. We shall now collect all the responses and work with Digital Medic at Stanford University to analyse and interpret the results with a view to prepare a final report for the World Health Organization by December 2023.

Best wishes, Neil
