Health Professionals for Global Health believes in social and political action to bring about global health equity.
We use education and advocacy in our local and national networks to engage health workers in considering determinants of health beyond our GP practices and hospitals. We recognise that wealth, equality, jobs, education, good governance, and protecting our environment and our human rights improve our health, while poverty, inequality, unemployment, ignorance, corruption, climate change and disregard for common human values lead to ill health.
Our members are a diverse national network of health professionals from all around the UK. We work with these health professionals, and aim to engage with professional organisations from around the UK, as well as local and national government to improve health in the UK and abroad.
