The UK's Contribution to Health Globally: Benefiting the Country and the World

29th June 2015



The report has been prepared by researchers from the London School of Hygiene &Tropical Medicine and describes the UK's footprint on health globally across the four sectors of academia, government, commerce and not-for-profit activity and shows that the UK plays a leading role in each sector. Its global contribution is second only to the US which it surpasses in some areas.




Call for Evidence

The future development of nursing globally – a review by the All-Party Group on Global Health which will look specifically at how the UK can contribute to the development of nurses and nursing globally

10th January 2016



The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health is undertaking a review of nursing globally with support from the Royal College of Nursing. It will look at how nursing needs to develop globally – addressing such issues as education, recruitment, retention, role definition and regulation – as well as considering, numbers of nurses, capacity and finances.


The APPG will not attempt to cover this enormous area in any detail but will aim to pick out the key strategic issues and to concentrate on what the UK can do to support the development of nursing and nurses globally. This follows on from the APPG’s recent mapping of The UK’s Contribution to Health Globally (see below) which identified the enormous scope that the UK has to help improve health globally.


As part of this review the APPG on Global Health is putting out a call internationally to gather written evidence of accounts, opinions and experiences to help inform the report. All evidence must be submitted by Friday 12th of February 2016.
