Human Health Project‘s (HHP) foundation is built upon peer-to-peer health information, education, and support. Through our programs, our objective is to empower individuals locally and globally to manage their health.
We now have four programs up and running, helping people help each other with their health,
This has been achieved primarily through the amazing work of HHP's team of dedicated volunteers in combination with a relatively low cash budget, small core team, donors and grantors. Our challenge and opportunity now is to significantly increase the number of people we are reaching with our programs and in turn to also increase our funding support in order to be able to do so.
Today HHP is made up of affiliated but separate legal entities in the United States, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. At the heart of HHP’s vision is the belief that individuals have a unique insight about themselves and their conditions and have a desire and willingness to share this knowledge to help and support others. Peer-to-peer support provides the opportunity for patients to learn about their conditions as well as the motivation to maintain their own health and well-being. HHP programs are led by communities, patients and volunteers who are included in every stage, from systems and product developments through to good governance at committee and trustee levels.
HHP was founded in 2002 by Dr. Phil Harrington who had spent three years trying to find a diagnosis which sparked the idea for HHP. Today we are made up of a small core staff with 80+ volunteers, 30+ board members and advisers, spread around the world.
