Our Story

HIYH DrJ and Shariha in Geneva at WHO (1).JPG

Welcome to Health in Your Hands (HIYH), an initiative that is close to our hearts and which purpose is to put health in the hands of the people who most need it.

We both come from a long career in health, and appreciate the power of partnerships.  After all, only when we all work together we can achieve that prodigious goal.

As you will see in exploring this website, HIYH is a platform that showcases innovations which promise to deliver health outcomes, placing “health into the hands” of communities, especially in low resource settings; and aims to drive together stakeholders to scale these. 

The two of us have been devoted to this project since we met at the World Government Summit in Dubai in 2007 where the United Arab Emirates initiated the “SDGs in Action” project, bringing together experts and practitioners in diverse fields to co-create game-changing solutions for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

We enthusiastically invite you to explore this website, and think where you can, engage with the innovations and form valuable partnerships, so we can have a healthier future for our families, communities, societies and the world.
