My experience volunteering for Human Health Project has been nothing short of excellent. Currently a Front-End Developer on the IT Team, I have been fortunate to expand my skills working with such a dedicated, talented, and inspiring group. I have found my experience here to be unique - with international contributors and passionate leadership, I can say it is not only a pleasure but an honor to be working with HHP. Over the past 8 months I've spent volunteering with HHP, it has become clear that everyone here is eager and devoted to furthering Human Health Project's mission. As a whole, the group is responsive, enthusiastic, and driven, all qualities which motivate me to continue with HHP.

HHP is on the mission to connect patients one to another and establish the first unbiased, non-profit health seekers community that covers both traditional and alternative medicine treatments outcome rates.

Learning what treatments work, connecting to others and empowering this new peer-to-peer patients network to share their experience, are visionary foundations of what health management is going to be in the near future.

HHP has a great mission and they are a talented dedicated group of individuals!

I'm really glad that I found Human Health Project. It's a great place to volunteer, to sharpen my skills and develop new ones. The volunteers are from all over the world and everyone is highly driven to make a difference in healthcare. The organization is entrepreneurial and transparent. You can really feel like you own a piece of it because of the level of responsibilities you are given and the level of engagement there are between team members. The HHP site is also a terrific resource for anyone who has health questions and anyone who wants to connect with others in similar conditions.

HHP is a unique organization in that it gives people from any background a forum to have their medical questions answered by both professionals and those that are afflicted with similar illnesses. The initiatives' leadership is extremely driven to help those that are in need of medical advice that they, for one reason or another, cannot attain. Every decision that is made is done so with the thought of "How can we best help the most people?" The organization is amazing and continues to improve as it grows and sets higher goals to help more and more individuals in need.

I volunteered at the Human Health Project off and on for just over 2 years. While volunteering, I had the opportunity to work with people who were passionate about improving health outcomes for all populations and develop and utilize a skill set on which to build a career in health administration upon.

The inspiration for founding Human Health Project (HHP) came from an illness that left me unable to work for two years but which could have been taken care of in a few months with the right information. Despite my medical (MD) and patient advocate background, I spent 4 years going from doctor to doctor, conventional and complementary without a diagnosis. I saw first hand what's it's like to try to survive in the twilight zone while falling through the cracks of the healthcare system. When I recovered I started to work on addressing what happened to me, out of which grew HHP.

Human Health Project (HHP) provides a free online service that enables you to share information about your health symptoms and conditions with other individuals. Our goal is to improve access, self-management, equity, and affordability of health care throughout the world. HHP is a nonprofit, noncommercial, volunteer-based organization promoting the health of individuals worldwide as a human right for all.

This patient-web based dynamic enables individuals worldwide to access medical information and communicate experiences from all corners of the world.

I've acted as a patient advocate for a young man with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, using HHP as both sounding board and source of advice. Just the process of creating the questions I needed to become a patient advocate empowered me, the patient and the circle of support around the patient during his almost 12 months in hospital/undergoing extreme doses of chemotherapy. HHP gave me the language and a role which the hospital could relate to and support (the immediate family hadn't built any links to the treatment or the future outcomes). HHP offers far more than the opportunity to learn about 'dis-ease', it provides a bridge to a long term constructive perspective developing a health process for all involved. It moves us away from expert:patient, and engages everyone in quality support of life. HHP's role is critical to creating long term bridges for health.

Many people either cannot or will not speak to a medical professional about a health problem, either through lack of understanding, embarrassment or financial constraint. HHP provides a platform for people to ask for advice anonymously and talk to others who have a similar experience. It also lets clients access health information. Crowdsourcing is the main focus.

I appreciate the Human Health Project's (HHP) efforts to empower individual people, including consumers, to help each other in part because I was involved for many years in large public and private health and health insurance programs in the USA. In most big programs, the implementation and management mechanisms have become the priority, although most of the health needs involve chronic diseases for which self-management has been found (evidence-based) to be extremely important. HHP's approach reverses the emphasis, let's people help people, and is noncommercial, too. It is remarkable what HHP has done with about $20,000 of funding from individuals and a small family foundation.
