The UK's role in global health

Foreword from Howard Lyons, MD, Healthcare UK:

"Building on the success stories which exemplify the UK’s contribution to global health - from support for ebola prevention to training healthcare professionals overseas – we need to forge even stronger ties between the wide range of British organisations at the heart of international activity.

In this context, Healthcare UK is delighted to be supporting the Dods ‘Exporting Healthcare’ conference, which will consider the UK’s role in global health and the extent to which we can develop and refine domestic partnerships, in order to collaborate with countries across the world.

Your participation in the event will be crucial to its success: this debate is about bringing together representatives from across the NHS, private, government and third sectors."
