Challenge

Coping with being ill, frightened and overwhelmed, finding a diagnosis, living in the twilight zone, feeling lost and lonely, not knowing who to turn to or how to pay all the rising bills. These are the challenges confronting people who find themselves in a health crisis too often desperate for answers. Human Health Project has a small core team and more than 100 volunteers who help people grow their resilience, knowledge and confidence to keep going, to inform themselves about their choices.

Solution

Human Health Project combines a) education about how healthcare systems work with courses that cover topics ranging from how to research conditions and treatments online to understanding their patient rights. b) The collection and sharing of data about health conditions, including causes and triggers, symptoms, treatments and their side effects and outcomes and c) Patient advocacy and Digital Literacy training to be able to advocate for themselves and for their loved ones.

Long-Term Impact

To date, almost over 13,000 people have taken the HHP Migraine survey and over 1.3 million people from over 230 countries have visited the Human Health Project website and received significant information on their health issues. Outcomes: After viewing the migraine survey data, respondents who reported their understanding of migraine headaches as excellent, very good, or good increased by almost 20%. HHP provided peer advocacy training to an initial 10 volunteers in 2020/2021.
