Students for Global Health (SfGH) is a national network of students working together to target global health inequalities through education, advocacy and community action. This altogether helps us to reach our common goal of a fair and just world in which equity in health is a reality for all! We are deeply involved in helping to tackle issues such as climate change, women’s rights, infectious diseases and access to medicine… and many more!
This year our annual theme is 'Climate Change', so we will be raising money for our chosen charity, ‘Blue Ventures’, who do wonderful work for conservation and community health!
This year our proudest successes included hosting a national student conference on the topic of 'Displacement', with SfGH branches from all over the UK! We also held a very rewarding Christmas shoebox collection appeal to help provide essential aid to refugee camps in Greece and France in association with Open Hearts Open Borders.
Plymouth is one of 30 university branches across the UK. We run many other events throughout the year including charity fundraising, short courses (perfect for your portfolios!), national and international opportunities for members to attend such as national and international conferences, internships and volunteering opportunities, and weekend events - such as socials!
Our society is perfect for any student who is interested in reducing health inequalities in any profession, and excited by the opportunities available in global health!
Joining us will allow you to meet people across all years with similar interests and get involved with the community while making a difference and having fun. We can’t wait to welcome you in the new academic year!!
