Students for Global Health

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 disciples 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. 

Our events this year include:

  • University-wide blood donation drive
  • Global Health Short Course
  • Tackling period poverty
  • Debate series and workshops
  • Campaign and fundraise for a charity (specifically focussing on women's health this year)
  • A Global Health hackathon
  • Events surrounding climate change


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 through the year and give opportunities to train you up to organise worshops of your own!
