The King’s Global Health Partnerships are working in Somaliland, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to support governments to strengthen health care and its outcomes by empowering people, strengthening organisations and enhancing systems. They are bringing the academic, health and international development communities together, pioneering a distinctive approach that is responsive, rigorous and long-term.
Over half of the world’s population is unable to access health services, causing unnecessary suffering and preventing people from living healthy and productive lives. We believe that every person should be able to access quality health care when they need it, and that the world shares responsibility for making this happen. King’s has the capacity to respond and make a profound difference to people’s lives, and in doing so contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. We work alongside our partners to deliver projects such as improving health education, setting up mental health services, instituting a trauma system, and preparing for any future outbreaks of Ebola.
Our Big Idea is to scale up how the Partnerships draw on expertise from across the University and the King’s Health Partners NHS Trusts, harnessing the volunteer energy of staff, students and alumni. We will be finding creative new ways to learn from our work, embracing opportunities to develop education, research and professional services at King’s, making the world a better place both at home and abroad.
