Students for Global Health is a student network and registered charity, which tackles global and local health inequalities through education, advocacy and community action. This society comprises of students from various schools, across UEA, that share a common vision – “A fair and just world in which equity in health is a reality for all."
We have over 30 branches in universities across the UK. Our activities range from hosting national conferences on global health issues to training days that hone your leadership and advocacy skills, whilst enabling you to get involved in issues that you're passionate about.
Some of our past events include the very successful Global Health Short Course, which covered key topics such as Gender and Health, and an open debate with reputable speakers across the UK on Healthcare in Prisons. We also keep our members informed about national and international opportunities such as internships with the WHO, and getting involved with research and advocacy within the many National Working Groups that operate under Students for Global Health.
You can expect events such as film screenings and our annual presentation competition "Let's Talk: Global Health", which gives YOU a chance to tell us about your experiences of working with NGOs and other organizations within global/public health.
If you have a keen interest in being the change you want to see in this world, we would love to help you create change.
