The Improving Global Health (IGH) through Leadership Development programme is a unique and innovative scheme run by the Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy (TVWLA).
The programme recruits volunteers from the NHS who are awarded a Fellowship and are known as NHS IGH Fellows; each 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 programme, please see the IGH FAQs on the Resources page under the 'Documents' heading.
You are welcome to join us at one of our Presentation Evenings where returning Fellows present their experiences. The next events are Thursday 8th February and Thursday 3rd May 2018. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend both or either of these dates.
The IGH programme is now recruiting. Applications are welomed from those who meet the role criteria and who work for the NHS in England - as ever this is subject to sufficient funding. The application form, role description and FAQs can be found on the Resources page under the 'Documents' heading. The deadline for applications is 9am Tuesday 6th March 2018 and interviews will be held the morning of Friday 23rd March at Health Education England - Wessex office, Otterbourne, Hampshire, SO21 2RU. Please note, acceptance onto the programme does not necessarily guarantee a placement overseas.
(Both restricted access, only for IGH Fellows)
This programme has been part funded by the Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET) as part of the Health Partnership Scheme between 2013 and 2017.
