Who we are

CGHP is a charitable programme based at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

We facilitate safe, ethical and effective healthcare partnerships between the East of England and low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our work aims to strengthen healthcare systems and address major health challenges by sharing knowledge, skills, resources and experiences.

How we work

We support NHS staff, students, and academics at all levels to collaborate with partners and colleagues in hospitals and healthcare institutions in LMICs. Our work is hybrid, allowing people to participate in global health work in-person and remotely. Together, our partners and members co-develop and co-deliver projects that tackle healthcare issues in LMICs, as well as improving care in the UK.

Our impact

Global health is focused on achieving equity in health and wellbeing for all by fostering collaboration to build a community with a shared future for humanity (Chen et al., 2020), regardless of geographic location.

CGHP's work directly supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 by ensuring and promoting health and wellbeing for all and for people of all ages. We do this by facilitating partnerships and projects that aim to reduce health disparities through reciprocal learning, collaborative research, and multidisciplinary training.

Get involved

There are many ways to get involved and support CGHP – you could participate in a health partnership, apply for funding to deliver a global health project, or donate to support the work we facilitate. Getting involved develops you personally and professionally and we welcome expressions of interest from healthcare staff of all levels and disciplines.

Working with us ensures your contribution is safe, effective, and ethical—not only for you but also for our partners and their patients.

We also offer advice, guidance and training, help with applying for special leave, and assistance in finding funding for partnership activities, projects, and visits.
