Human Health Project's mission is to promote peer-to-peer holistic health with three pillars: Information, Education and Support, whereby people around the world 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. Human Health Project addresses for following problems for patients and their loved ones: 1. Access to patient education about their rights and healthcare choices. 2. Access to support that inspires them to keep going no matter how difficult their health and life situation appears. 3. Access to accurate and unbiased information about all types of medicines including conventional, alternative, holistic and Integrative.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Real-World Data

Healthcare is fragmented, and this adversely impacts quality, cost, and outcomes. For example, doctors and practitioners typically don’t have knowledge of each other’s medicines and the broad range of treatments available. Additionally, due to the rapid growth of technology and online resources, the amount of health information has increased exponentially. The abundance of information available has made it much more difficult to find the information you need. Knowing who to trust in a sea of commercial health resources can seem almost impossible.

These are significant problems, and that’s what HHP’s Real-World Data program is about. We provide independent, unbiased information from our community, including all types of medicines, to help you make informed healthcare decisions. Participate by sharing your experiences or learning about how others manage their health conditions.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Information: Real World Data ( https://humanhealthproject.org/hhp-real-world-data-program/ )

Out of what we have learnt, we are now researching the building of infrastructure to be able to allow the HHP community to share information about their health conditions in a user friendly, mobile app based form boosted with artificial intelligence. Our goal with funding is to launch 2 new health conditions in 2022 and 4 in 2023. Long term, our goal is to launch all the approximately 600 main health conditions.

Education: Learning Academy (https://humanhealthproject.org/learning-academy/)

We will release a second three module course, Patient Empowerment 101 in Q2 2022 and our plan, with funding, is to launch 4 courses per year in the coming years. In addition to this, we are now working on creating and releasing US localized "State" versions of our courses and in partnership with local healthcare organizations and with funding, in other countries.

Support: Understanding The Healthcare System (Patient Advocacy)

We are currently piloting our Peer to Peer Patient Advocacy Workshops program under the name, “Understanding The Healthcare System”, which includes our HHP's Learning Academy, Patient Advocacy,11 module course. Our goal is to improve the program as a result of feedback and outcomes from the pilot program and to release it, with funding, commencing in 2022, in the US. Our goal in 2023 and future years is to release localized, US "State" versions of this program as well as localized version in other countries in partnership with local non profit healthcare partners.

Support: Online Peer to Peer Panels ( https://humanhealthproject.org/events/ )

In October 2020, we launched our Online Peer to Peer Panels program which has been very well received. Videos of the events (which can be viewed on our website) will start to be marketed in Q1 2022. Our goal, with funding, is to grow the number of events from 4 in 2021 to 6 in 2022 and 10 in 2023.


Our strategies are

1. Deliver integrated, personalized and localized delivery of all our programs, to give people the maximum benefit from them

2. Deliver our programs to people directly online and in partnership with non profit healthcare organizations

3. Deliver our programs via mobile and online with maximum use of off-the-shelf applications and minimum coding

4. Fund the delivery of programs and services through a sustainable combination of fee for service, grants and donations

5. Continue to grow a core paid team complementing HHP volunteers

Our capabilities include:

- Our 7 member board and who have a broad spread of skills
- Our 9 member Program Council

Information: Real World Data ( https://humanhealthproject.org/hhp-real-world-data-program/ )

We launched a pilot of our Real World Data Program in 2016 with the condition Migraine and followed with the condition Lupus in 2017. Since then, over 13,000 people have shared data on Causes/Triggers, Symptoms and Treatments which can be viewed on 100 pages for both Migraine and Lupus on our Real World Data pages. Outcomes data collected in 2019 (see this data in the “What Our Members Are Saying” (on our "What We Do" > "Real World Data" page) showed that people found the data very helpful.

Education: Learning Academy (https://humanhealthproject.org/learning-academy/)

In 2020, we released an 11 module Patient Advocacy course. In Q1 2022, we released, on the web and on mobile apps, our first publicly available online Patient Education, three module course Patient-Driven Data & Diagnosis: The New Trailblazers in Health Research.

Support: Online Peer to Peer Panels ( https://humanhealthproject.org/events/ )

In October 2020, we launched our Online Peer to Peer Panels program which has been very well received and have held 5 events to date, videos of which can be seen on our online events page.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
