HIFA - Healthcare Information for All

HIFA is a global health network with nearly 20,000 members (health workers, librarians, publishers, researchers, policymakers...) committed to the progressive realisation of a world where every person has access to the healthcare information they need to protect their own health and the health of others.


HIFA members represent more than 2500 organisations across 178 countries worldwide, and interact on five HIFA Forums in English, French, and Portuguese (Spanish coming soon).

HIFA was launched in Mombasa, Kenya, in October 2006, at the 10th Congress of the Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa.


Phi is a supporting organisation of HIFA and is represented on the HIFA 2015 Steering Group
