Hello Lawrence,

Many thanks for your message. There is no major change in HIFA objectives: our work is primarily about healthcare information, for example guidance and clinical guidelines.

Such guidance is ultimately dependent on data. We are aware that there are some huge issues around collection and reporting of data on COVID-19. HIFA connects with other organisations that address these issues.

Best wishes, Neil

I've been receiving for years HIFA newsletters etc. and wondered if the below message is in regards to major change in HIFA objectives?

The COVID 19 situation is an example of data crises as to those who are infected and those died resulting in chaos as to whose information is correct. It's a mess a crisis of what's happening. There is little criteria on the primary cause of death no standard etc efc.

This is an area we need standardization and agreed rules of information collected. WHO or another body should initiate such an undertaking.
