A Social Return on Investment analysis estimated that our global health partnerships can deliver social benefits nearly 10 times greater than the project cost. [1]

It costs approximately £1,500 to organise a one-week volunteer visit from Cambridge to a low- or middle-income partner country – or a visit by one of our partners to Cambridge. The highly-skilled health professionals who volunteer on our projects provide many times that value through training and knowledge sharing, as well as gaining significant learning through their experiences, which would not be possible if they stayed in the UK.

The feedback we receive is overwhelmingly positive: 97% of our volunteers would recommend international volunteering to friends and colleagues. [2]

Thank you for supporting our work and helping us build global health partnerships safely, effectively, and ethically.

The social return on investment for partners in El Salvador was estimated at nearly 10 to 1; for the NHS it was 7 to 1; the overall social return on investment for Cambridge Global Health Partnerships was 3 to 1.
