Our Funding

Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP) relies on the generous support of our donors. Without funding, our work improving the quality of healthcare globally would not be possible.

CGHP is a charitable programme funded entirely by donations and grants. Our supporters include individuals, trusts and foundations, institutional donors, and corporate partners. We are committed to building strong relationships with our supporters and developing new sources of charitable income.

We use our funding to establish and run health partnerships. Funding supports activities such as:

  • Training sessions and mentoring
  • Country visits
  • Long term volunteer placements
  • Purchasing teaching materials
  • Monitoring & evaluation for impact
  • Programme management and strategic planning
  • Communications, events, networking, and advocacy
  • Logistics and administrative support.

Global health challenges are complex and require sustainable solutions. It is estimated that by 2030, there will be a shortage of 18 million health workers globally. Poor areas will be the hardest hit – most Sub-Saharan African countries have fewer than 3 medical doctors per 10,000 population, compared to 28 in the UK.

To address this, and contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, CGHP provides training and creates stimulating opportunities for health workers’ professional and personal growth. More than 90% of our members report that their skills, such as leadership and team working, improved through partnership activity.

Please donate to help us build safe, effective, and ethical global health partnerships.

  • “Working as a long-term volunteer, as part of CGHP, in Myanmar for 3 months has been the most incredible experience. I have grown as a person and a professional hugely from taking part in this line of work … A particular highlight of mine has to be seeing immediate results after conducting a joint nursing-physiotherapy teaching on secretion management for patients on ICU … Being a part of this project and CGHP as a whole is something that would highly recommend to anyone.”
