WHO WE ARE
Human Health Project‘s (HHP) foundation is built upon peer-to-peer health information, education, and support. Through our programs, our objective is to empower individuals locally and globally to manage their health.
HHP was founded in 2002 by Dr. Phil Harrington who had spent three years trying to find a diagnosis which sparked the idea for HHP. Today we are made up of a small core staff with 80+ volunteers, 30+ board members and advisers, spread around the world.
To be the leading global resource for peer-to-peer health information, education, and support
HHP’s mission is to provide donation
based, peer-to-peer programs whereby
people can help each other with their
health issues, reducing inequities in
health outcomes. HHP has a special focus on the underserved and vulnerable population groups, as well as the elderly and their caregivers.
HHP supports the patient empowerment movement
and e-patient initiatives. We believe medicine should
be participatory, and that individuals who are
equipped with the most accurate and up-to-date
health information, education, and support are
empowered to make informed health decisions for
themselves and those in their care.
Peer-Led Patient Advocacy
Peer-Led patient advocacy is about supporting
people who are not being heard in the healthcare
system, and empowering them to use their right of
autonomy. Through sharing of information,
experiences, and resources, advocates inspire
patients to have confidence and take ownership in
their care plan.
Health Information Access
We believe people have a right to accurate and
unbiased information about all types of medicines
including conventional, alternative and Integrative.
We believe free access to health information is not a
privilege, but rather a human right that should be
granted to every individual regardless of geographic
location, social class, or financial position.
Local Partnerships &
Our mission transcends borders, and we
embrace partnerships with other nonprofit
organizations. We are primarily volunteer-based
and rely on local volunteers and partnerships to
help us fulfill our mission. Through our
partnerships and volunteers, we aim to improve
the lives of the most underserved and vulnerable
communities around the world.
We rely on your donations to pay for servers, bandwidth, maintenance, and development of the Human Health Project platform including salaries. We need a small paid staff of 5 to work with a volunteer team of 80 people. Your financial gift will help not only us, but people across the globe.
Join the HHP movement today. Our project is growing and we want you to be a part of it.
