Healthcare Information For All (HIFA) is a dynamic online global health community and campaign working for a world where every person and every health worker has access to the healthcare information they need to protect their own health and the health of others. Lack of reliable healthcare information is a neglected hidden killer, contributing massively to avoidable death and suffering as a result of misinformation, indecision, delay, misdiagnosis and poor quality care, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

HIFA has 20,000 members (health professionals, librarians, publishers, researchers, policymakers, human rights activists and others) in 180 countries, interacting on six virtual discussion forums in four languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish). HIFA works closely with the World Health Organization and is officially endorsed by 400 health and development organisations worldwide.
