Launch of HIFA-Spanish, 7 November (2)

8 November, 2018

Dear Neil,

Congratulations all round especially to Neil and Isabelle for this major feat!

Back in 2006 in Mombasa Kenya a seed was sown that has grown and evolved to what we are all witnessing today.

Indeed, Health Information for All is increasingly possible with these significant milestones.

Truly, 'Let's build a future where people are no longer dying for lack of healthcare information'.

Joseph Ana.
