Introduction: Neil Pakenham-Walsh and HIFA

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I am delighted to join this community and look forward to learn from others. By way of introduction, I coordinate HIFA 

HIFA (Healthcare Information For All) is a dynamic global health community working in collaboration with the World Health Organization and supported by more than 300 health and development organisations worldwide. We have more than 19,000 members (health professionals, librarians, publishers, researchers, policymakers, human rights activists and others) in 180 countries, working to improve the availability and use of reliable healthcare information, especially in low- and middle-income countries where lack of information can contribute to indecision, delay, misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment and consequent morbidity and mortality. Our work prioritises patient safety. HIFA's members interact on 6 global discussion forums in 4 languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish).
