Partnerships in Health Information

Phi works to improve the health of people across sub-Saharan Africa by building and supporting partnerships between libraries to increase both public and professional access to timely, reliable and appropriate health information.

Charity Registration No. 1157156

Story

Partnerships in Health Information is a small charity I have supported for a number of years.  They work with African libraries to build leadership capacity, support evidence based practice and improve public access to health information. 

Last year I spent the morning exchanging knowledge with two Tanzanian librarians who had been hosted by PHI as Commonwealth Professional Fellows for a three month study tour in the UK

see http://tinyurl.com/PHI2014 for more information

It was a great reminder of the valuable work PHI do. I was also prompted by a tweet about #buyalibrary from a couple of years back. I hope people will be as keen to #buildalibrarian

I have registered to run in the Hoohaah run on the 21st of June. There is 10k to cover with a bit more by way of gradient than I am used to so it should be reasonably hard work. 

If you can give a little something that would be great. Even better would be if you could give a little something and share what I am trying to do. Or just share!

Thanks

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. JustGiving do take a small amount but for a small charity like PHI the reduction in their input makes this more than worthwhile.
