Health Professionals for Global Health is committed to achieving our Vision and Mission for a UK health workforce that engages with global health challenges to achieve equitable health for all. We recognise that forming meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships is necessary for maximising the impact of our activities in Advocacy and Education.






We are committed to maintaining the relationships built by Alma Mata and the Global Health Curriculum Group prior to the merger of these two constituent groups, and to growing new relationships. Since our establishment, we have worked with Health Education England and the Royal Colleges, hosted international academics, joined forces with fellow activist groups and engaged with health professionals in the UK, Europe and beyond.

Our aims within the partnership group are:

  • To collaborate with organisations and individuals in order to achieve collective goals;

  • Support the activities of the Education and Advocacy groups by facilitating meaningful partnerships;

  • Support suitable global health activities through facilitating partnerships for organisations and individuals.
