About Us

Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP) was established in 2007 in response to the increasing understanding within the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH), that engaging with global health has benefits for patients and healthcare workers, both overseas and in the UK.

Since then we have established global health partnerships across Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, and our volunteer healthcare professionals have improved the healthcare delivered to millions of patients.

We have also reached out to new partners across Cambridge and Cambridgeshire.

Our small team in Cambridge is dedicated to sharing this unique expertise worldwide safely, effectively and ethically.

By the end of 2018 we had helped over 600 volunteers from the UK health services to give more than 10,000 days of support to hospitals and healthcare services in over 50 countries and to train over 3,000 healthcare workers.

CGHP is a charitable programme based on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in the UK. The Campus is on track to become one of the leading biomedical centres in the world by 2020, with world-class research, patient care and education all combined on a single site at the heart of Europe’s leading biotechnology cluster.

CGHP operates under the umbrella of Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) – CUH’s dedicated charity.
