Our Mission: To drive patient-centered health outcomes by harnessing data collected by a global online community who share their treatment outcomes, enhanced by clinical evidence-based best practices
Human Health Project (HHP) is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals increase their health knowledge through the sharing of health information. HHP collects, analyzes, and shares health information to empower and inform individuals to achieve better health outcomes. Our patient-centered approach enables patients and caregivers to choose treatments based on evidence-based clinical data as well as the cumulative knowledge of the HHP community.

I highly discourage you from applying to the HHP as what they're doing is just collecting everyone's resumes. They advertised for a role in which I have more than 10+ years of professional experience doing plus I have extensive volunteering experience. I had also gone through the trouble to write a cover letter to explain how my past experience is pretty much what they're looking for as it ticks all the boxes in their volunteer description and I outlined what I believe I can contribute upon joining their organization. Upon sending my details, I have heard nothing back for months but I kept seeing the same role advertised over and over again. Looking at the other reviews for this non-profit I guess this is a common pattern and VolunteerMatch should review and consider removing this organization from this site. This site is intended to match volunteers with non-profits, if the non-profit is not looking for volunteers it should not advertise for non-existent roles.
Don't know if this is a real position or not, but if it is, it's extremely shady. Very discouraging that even very sincere, committed, compassionate passionate, and very well qualified people do not even get a chance to help: no selection process. "HR" person (who, interestingly, is also a volunteer) tries to discourage applicants right at the start through a questionnaire, collects resumes and discriminates right out of the gate, ignoring most relevant and appropriate qualifications -- have never ever in my career not ended up with at least an interview and/or hiring, very suspicious. May also be because the "HR"/org may have special friends who they give positions to regardless of qualification (though for no pay, just experience), like in 2008, when some employers were hiring their close friends/relatives without even an interview.
It did not work out for some reason I cannot identify. I was just ignored after signing all the papers. It has been a long while since I applied for this but it has been in the back of my mind to provide some feedback on this experience.
