NHS Scotland Global Citizenship conference 2021
The 2021 conference was held virtually and focussed on planetary health through global citizenship, reflecting on climate change and quality improvement partnerships and how together these can lead to action on inequalities. We were delighted to be joined by representatives from overseas partners who spoke on the situation in Myanmar, the impact of climate change on health outcomes in Africa and how quality improvement is supporting health partnership working in Malawi, Zambia and South America.
The breakout groups introduced our newly launched Global Citizenship resources which have been created to support and empower NHS staff to make a positive impact on global health in their working lives, and understand how the choices we make locally can affect those living globally.
This event was co-hosted by the Scottish Government Global Health Co-ordination Unit, and the SHSC NHS National Services Scotland. The two sessions, on Climate Change and Quality Improvement, were recorded and can be viewed below.
