"At a time of rapid globalization and growing instability, global health is emerging as an important concept and has been adopted as a key policy theme by the UK Government.
The APPG on Global Health is connecting parliamentarians with a growing global health community of academics and civil society groups, to inform and improve policy in this vital area"

The result of a partnership by six All Party Parliamentary Groups, this report takes a global perspective on how to empower patients to play a more active role in their care. Drawing lessons from over 100 innovative case studies submitted to the review, it outlines how much the UK has to learn from high, middle and low income countries – and how these lessons should be applied. At the same time, the report also highlights the UK’s strengths, its important role historically in supporting the global patient empowerment agenda, and how it can continue to play a leading role internationally.
