HIFA (Healthcare Information For All)

Healthcare Information For All

HIFA (Healthcare Information For All) is a global social movement to improve the availability and use of healthcare information in low- and middle-income countries. It has more than 20,000 members in 180 countries (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 is supported by more than 400 organisations worldwide, and is in Official Relations with the World Health Organization.

Our vision is:

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.

We are looking to recruit a Volunteer Fundraising Coordinator

To date HIFA has successfully relied largely on volunteers with a minimal central cost base, a model which has delivered exceptional results and global recognition with over 400 organisations worldwide pledging alliance to the vision. In January 2022 Global Healthcare Information Network (the small non-profit that administers HIFA) was admitted into official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO), with a 3-year WHO Collaboration Plan to accelerate progress towards universal access to reliable healthcare information, building on our existing Strategy. This means that we now have an ambitious and expanded programme of work that requires substantially more income to build our capacity and impact (current income 2022 = £50k; target income 2023 = £140k).

We now seek a tenacious, well organised administrator with experience in fundraising to help co-ordinate and drive forward the existing fundraising activities and assist the HIFA Coordinator, Steering Group and Fundraising working group in identifying and pursuing new opportunities.

Based remotely or in our UK office the position is initially voluntary but could become remunerated over time. The successful applicant will be able to commit at least 2-4 hours per week.
