We now have 428 completed surveys! We need another 9,572!

28 August, 2023

Dear HIFA colleagues,

We now have 428 completed surveys! We need another 9,572 by 30th September. With your help I'm confident we'll get there.

Please, if YOU haven't completed the survey already yourself, go ahead and do it now (it only takes 5 minutes):


The survey is available in 10 languages. We need 10,000 responses, from every country, and from every professional group - as well as patients and the general public.

We shall quickly achieve our target if every HIFA member sends this URL - www.hifa.org/survey2023 - to everyone you know - by email, social media or on your website. See for example what our bronze sponsor eCancer posted on their website (and feel free to re-use):


Here is a short note you can adapt/send to your contacts:

***HIFA and WHO survey on universal access to reliable healthcare information - Can you imagine a world where every person and every health worker has timely access to the information they need to protect their own health and the health of others? Where every person is protected from misinformation? We invite you to complete this 5-minute global survey, available in 10 languages: www.hifa.org/survey2023. The results of this survey will be made publicly available and will inform next steps by WHO and partners on how to accelerate progress in 2024 and beyond.***

Thank you for your support
