For many years NHS staff have dedicated their skills and expertise to assisting partners in Low and Middle Income Countries to deliver quality healthcare. This has been much more challenging over the last 16 months as COVID-19 has impacted healthcare systems across the world and the ability to travel overseas has been limited.
During this time NHS staff and partners have identified new and novel ways to work together and provide mutual support. However we know that not being there to provide in-person support has been hard for staff who are deeply committed to health partnership work and the health and wellbeing of the people and communities that work supports.
In light of the above, this year more than any other year, we want to pay homage to and celebrate the continued commitment and dedication of NHS staff to global health, particularly during these challenging times. To do this the NHS Global Citizenship Programme has launch a new Storybook and podcast.
More info on both of these below:
The story book contains 32 case studies of global citizenship projects across the world supported by NHS staff and partners.
The Podcast interviews the winner and finalists of the Health Awards Global Citizenship category 2020 about their global health partnership work.
