Education

Every semester we choose a global health theme (such as maternal and child health, or refugee healthcare) around which to organise a series of educational events.  Past themes include maternal and child health, asylum seeker and refugee healthcare, and climate change and health. I the first term of 2014/15 we have looked at Neglected Tropical Diseases. 

We also have a global health education working group.  This group is dedicated to further integrating global health education with the mainstream medical curriculum.  It also works to engage our branch in national debate on the place of global health in the undergraduate medical curriculum.

Advocacy

We support various campaigns throughout the year which work against global health inequality. 

In 2012-2013 we have supported Every Mother Counts as part of our maternal and child health series.  We also routinely publicise and support Medsin-UK's current campaigns, as well as campaigns for specific events, such as Why Stop Now for World AIDS day. In 2014 we supported The END Fund. 

Action

Healthcare is everywhere.  'Global' health does not mean 'foreign' health.

With Crossing Borders, we are involved in working in Sheffield to improve healthcare for asylum seekers and refugees. Crossing Borders piloted their schools project in October 2014, teaching 10 year olds about asylum seekers in an engaging and accessible way. We also work with Healthy Planet to reduce the climate impact of various NHS bodies in Sheffield.  Finally, we are planning fundraisers to help support local and international charities.
