Despite much international humanitarian aid over many years, the inequity in healthcare between high- and low-income countries remains striking today. The College is keen to play our part in international efforts to develop a coordinated strategy towards achieving equity of health status and healthcare provision globally. We want to facilitate opportunities for our Fellows and Members to get alongside local healthcare professionals, to support training and education and to enable delivery of high-quality, sustainable healthcare locally. The College is developing closer links and partnerships with several low-income countries including Malawi and Zambia.

The volunteering and partnerships map below contains information our Fellows have provided and contact details for more information. Partnerships with opportunities for volunteering are highlighted in yellow (Volunteering marker). If you have a partnership you would like to add please contact Ellie Barnes.
