From Competition to Collaboration
Responding to Global Health Challenges
Are you interested in global health? Looking for ways to gain experience overseas? Then...
The IGH programme is a unique and innovative scheme run by the Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy (TVWLA), Health Education England.
It recruits volunteers from the NHS who are awarded a Fellowship and are known as IGH Fellows; each IGH Fellow completes a placement for 6 months working with an Overseas Partner in a resource-poor setting. Drawn from all staff groups, the IGH programme enables volunteers to develop leadership skills through project work using system-strengthening methods. The projects, based in a number of overseas locations, contribute to improving healthcare in the local area in a sustainable way. Applicants are usually early to mid career.
To find out more about the IGH programme, please see the IGH Programme FAQs on the Resources page under the 'Documents' heading.
You are welcome to come along to a presentation evening where returning IGH Fellows present their experiences whilst on placement, these are usually held 4 times a year. The next event will take place on Thursday 20 September 2018. Please email email@example.com if you would like to attend.
