We are the UCL branch of the national network Students for Global Health which campaigns on global health and international development issues. We are a society with a relatively long history. Established in 1999, we tackle a range of global and local inequalities through education, advocacy and community action. We believe in the butterfly effect of change and how it begins with ourselves in our own communities first and foremost. Our vision of ‘a fair and just world in which equity in health is a reality for all’ drives a lot of the student campaigning that we do and is the end goal for arguably all global health scholars. We are a very active society, running regular weekly events, learning and training opportunities, as well as student-society interactions (mostly online this year) through our blog, website, and social media pages.  

We have several active campaigning streams on the areas of gender, access to medicines, environment, war and conflict and many others. These inspire our events’ themes which range from panel debates to all-day conferences, volunteering to society trips. We are an open and inclusive group, welcoming members from all degree programs and levels of expertise.

If you have a passion for equity in health and want to learn more about the global health landscape, then jump in!
