The Network: TUFH, a nonprofit organization in official relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO), believes in the power of connecting institutions, organizations, and individuals to foster innovative solutions to the world’s health care challenges. Members can connect and collaborate via our new members-only Online Community, as well as meet face-to-face at the international meetings held each year in a different WHO region, where they become inspired by the multi-institutional projects geared towards improvement of community health. Today, The Network: TUFH has over 200 dues-paying member institutions, organisations and individuals, with the vast majority from developing countries.
