Students for Global Health

Sign up to our Mailing List to find out more information about our group!

Students for Global Health Leicester (SfGH) is a registered charity run by students at a national and local level. We have 30 branches nationally and aim to tackle health inequality across the globe via campaigning, education and advocacy. Ultimately we want to inspire individuals of various backgrounds and disciplines to have a better insight into what global health entails.

We hold many events throughout the year with our most popular being the Global Health Short Course. We will attempt to run this as a virtual event this year! We will also be holding online campaigns on a range of important and relevant global health topics, and fundraising for relevant charities. We are also aiming to host online debates and workshops.

Students for Global Health Leicester is part of a larger network and registered charity with national and international links. As a member you can attend training courses, have the opportunity for international exchanges (medics and research placements) and to get involved with campaigning. We also offer workshops, debates and films on key themes throughout the year and give opportunities to train you up to organise workshops of your own!
