Didier focused his presentation on HIFA and the role that accessing and making available health information has in empowering populations everywhere and especially in rural areas to have good health. 25 participants decided to become HIFA members and are now participating on the HIFA-English and HIFA-French forums.

HIFA continues to grow steadily and total membership is now more than 19,000. The largest forums continue to be the main HIFA forum (English), CHIFA (English), and HIFA-Portuguese. HIFA-French and HIFA-Zambia continue to grow. In November 2018 we launched HIFA-Spanish in collaboration with WHO, PAHO and the WHO Collaborating Centre at the Andalucian School of Public Health. HIFA-Spanish is our fourth language and aligns with our strategic commitment to multilingualism. See the PDF below for further details.

HIFA is launching a fundraising appeal on 14th March at the HIFA office in Charlbury, near Oxford.

HIFA's activities, projects and forums continue to grow rapidly in size and number, and we aim to raise enough money to recruit a second paid member of staff to work with the coordinator, Neil Pakenham-Walsh.

Our immediate aim is to raise at least £75,000 per annum for our work in 2019 (this includes all 6 forums, 13 projects, salaries, admin, publications etc). Eventually we hope to raise £150-200k per annum.

Congratulations to CHIFA Lead moderator Tony Waterston and Charlotte Wright for their publication on 9 February in The Lancet. Their article is highlighted in this week's print Lancet which features their quote on the front cover:

"Surely the time has come to close the door on industry funding of paediatric organisations and protect our breastfeeding mothers from unfair influence."
