“I am honoured to be appointed to this role. Global health is more than a strap line; health affects every part of life. Raising levels of public and individual health and wellness around the world can transform lives, and make us all more secure.” – Catherine
Cambridge Global Health Partnerships works with hospitals, governments and health organisations in countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America to provide specialist expertise, support shared learning and encourage sustainable change.
Our work contributes directly to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 – Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages.
We are committed to delivering an ever-increasing positive impact on the communities we serve.
Engaging in global health has a huge impact both at home and away; 96% of our volunteers report that their volunteering has developed their communication skills, 91% are better able to manage limited resources, and 86% are refreshed and feel more motivated at work on their return. (Volunteer feedback 2012-2019).
We set up and manage health partnerships whereby UK-based healthcare professionals provide volunteer support individually, or more usually in teams, to healthcare institutions in other countries.Find out more
Our core programmes focus on delivering long-term partnerships with institutions. This provides time to build crucial relationships, to assess how we can best help, and to work together and embed good practice.Find out more
Volunteering overseas is a great opportunity to develop your medical, leadership and management skills, as well as sharing your existing skills with others. Find out about volunteering and other ways you can get involved.Find out more
International volunteering develops almost every aspect of your personal and professional life, forces you to challenge your working and cultural practice, develops new friendships, exposes you to new ideas, and allows you to see a side of another country that would be impossible to appreciate as a tourist. Most importantly, there’s a moral imperative; 5 billion people do not have access to safe, timely, affordable surgical and anaesthetic care while we in the UK enjoy enormously advanced healthcare free at the point of delivery.Tom Bashford Clinical Research Fellow, Specialist Registrar CUH, CGHP Committee member, and volunteer in Myanmar
