HIFA 2015

The East African Healthcare Forum is now a HIFA2015 Supporting Organisation.

Healthcare Information For All by 2015 (HIFA2015) is a global campaign and think-tank that brings together more than 6,000 health professionals, librarians and publishers from 167 countries worldwide, all committed to a common goal:

“By 2015, every person worldwide will have access to an informed health care provider”

It was launched at the 10th Congress of the Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa, in Mombasa, Kenya, in 2006. The campaign highlights the lack of availability of relevant, reliable healthcare information for health workers and citizens in developing countries, and what needs to be done about it. Members share expertise and experience on five dynamic global email forums, in English, Portuguese and French. The two main English forums are HIFA2015 and CHILD2015 (child health). During 2013, the campaign includes a special focus on the information and learning needs of prescribers and users of medicines.
