Going Global!

If you work in the NHS or in the UK health care sector and are looking to get involved in global health for the first time within a supportive and challenging learning environment then you may be interested in this event:

Coinciding with the forthcoming launch of Health Education England’s (HEE) new Global Workforce Strategy and drawing on the Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET)’s long experience of managing health partnerships across Africa and Asia, this day will provide an opportunity to learn from and engage with experienced colleagues in the field through a mixture of workshops, presentations and interactive sessions.

​The day is designed to provide interactive and engaging sessions for NHS staff and final year medical and pharmacy students the opportunity to learn about global health engagement. From exploring the different opportunities available, to understanding how you can capture the learning you gain whilst overseas, the day is a fantastic place to begin your global health journey.

2020 will be the Year of the Nurse and will celebrate Nursing and Midwifery, as endorsed by the WHO Executive Board.

"Noting that 2020 will be the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, and recognising her contribution to health and humanity, Dr Tedros said that, “Nurses and midwives play such a vital role in delivering Health for All”.

Lord Nigel Crisp, Co-Chair of the Nursing Now campaign said, “We warmly welcome the proposal from Dr Tedros and the Executive Board that 2020 be a year of global celebration for nurses and midwives. Nurses are at the heart of most health teams and by enhancing and promoting their role, countries across the world will improve health outcomes for all people.”

Yesterday was International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation

In 2018 WHO released a clinical handbook for the care of girls and women living with female genital mutilation.

Girls and women who have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM) need high quality, empathetic and appropriate health care to meet their specific needs. The clinical handbook is designed to help health care workers provide such care.

It includes advice on how to:

- communicate effectively and sensitively with girls and women who have developed health complications due to FGM;
- communicate effectively and sensitively with the husbands or partners and family members of those affected;
- provide quality health care to girls and women who have health problems due to FGM, including immediate and short-term urogynaecological or obstetric complications;
- provide support to women who have mental health and sexual health complications caused by FGM; make informed decisions on how and when to perform deinfibulation
- identify when and where to refer patients who need additional support and care; and
- work with patients and families to prevent the practice of FGM.
