Hello and welcome to the Sheffield branch of Students for Global Health. SfGH originated right here at The University of Sheffield over 20 years ago and we’ve been promoting better global health by spreading awareness on key issues through education ever since. Our mission is to raise awareness of global health issues through advocacy, policy and campaigning. To name a few, these global health issues include pandemic preparedness, women’s health, homelessness, conflict and migration, overseas trade and climate change.
We believe that good health is not limited to the work of doctors and health professionals, but should be everyone’s concern – no matter where you come from or what you do.
Here in the city, we run a variety of events throughout the year including guest expert speaker evenings, global health workshops, youth leader training, coffee shop style discussions, film nights, direct community action through volunteering and collaborations with other societies.
Meet & Greet- Pizza Night 2019
Last year got off to a great start at our Freshers Fair and meet and greet where we were astounded to see so many people enthusiastic about getting involved with SfGH and intrigued by what we had to offer. We have since held a number of events including a Climate Change and Health lecture, a Global Health Intercalation talk, Conversation Club and film screenings. We are also very much looking forward to hosting a Global Health Month in liaison with other key affiliates addressing key issues.
Throughout the year we look forward to the National Conferences that take place annually, gathering with other national branches to discuss current affairs and participate in workshops over the course of eventful weekends. Even if you’re new to the society you’re very much welcome to join us, we’re always looking to get more people involved!
