Global Health Cafe series

The Global Health Collaborative (GHC) was set up in 2016 to bring together individuals and organisations, across Plymouth and the wider South West, who have an interest in or are already working in, Global Health (GH). 

The GHC aims to share learning, enable new international health partnerships to be set up, and increase both GH education and work/experience opportunities for health professionals of all levels, both in international and 'locally global' settings.

GH cafes are informal semi-structured events which aim to: showcase local GH work, share learning, link interested individuals and signpost to educational/work opportunities/future GH partnerships.
