Global health workshops
The Academy of Medical Sciences has supported 21 global health policy workshops since 2016.
Our workshops aim to:
Enable partners (primarily National Academies) in countries eligible for UK Official Development Assistance to consider how scientific evidence can help address key global health challenges, both in their area and around the world.
Build in-country capacity for the provision of tailored, local, impactful scientific and policy advice.
To find out more about individual workshops, explore the tabs or download workshop reports from the side of this page. The Academy also supports a range of related global health networking grants supported through the Global Challenges Research Fund programme.
“To know that you are not alone with the challenges and barriers that you are facing in your region of the world and think about solutions together. It’s possible that collaborations that develop from the workshop can help in addressing these challenges on a broader scale.”
Dr Chima Ariel Onoka from the University Of Nigeria (2019 Universal Health Care workshop participant and Steering Committee member)
“I have learnt how to address country problems at a global forum, how to interrelate country problems with regional counterparts, how to synthesize the common and unique problems, and how to develop solutions that address unique problems of the country. These events have had an excellent impact on my career, leadership, and networking... my approach to crucial health topics has broadened and as a result I am more focused on delivering results-oriented projects.”
Dr Suraj Bhattarai is a medic who has trained in Nepal and the USA, and is now a member of the member of Global Young Academy
