Human Health Project
Human Health Project is a growing global community of patients, caregivers, health advocates, donors, and volunteers. HHP was created “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Listening to the community is central to the mission, and they value communication and the exchange of information in all that they do. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the US and a Northern Ireland (UK) registered charity. They rely on volunteers and the generosity of donors to support us and help us fulfill the mission. They are a completely noncommercial, unbiased resource for free health information. HHP is not beholden to shareholders. The primary stakeholders are individuals: those who struggle with health issues and seek unbiased information for themselves and for those in their care. They realize achieving long-term success requires sacrifice, innovation, and sustained effort. To maximize the impact, they hold themselves accountable to the global community, and strive to achieve meaningful and measurable outcomes.
Human Health Project (HHP) supports the patient empowerment movement. They believe medicine should be participatory, and that patients have better health outcomes when they are engaged and collaborate with their healthcare team. They believe individuals who are equipped with the most accurate and up-to-date health information are empowered to make informed health decisions for themselves and for those in their care. They advocate for “e-patient” initiatives aimed at increasing patient autonomy and involvement in their healthcare and treatment. They work towards extending the patient empowerment movement by bringing data to the center of health conversations.
