NHS Scotland Global Citizenship Conference 2023

The 2023 conference was held virtually on the theme of ‘Building Equitable Partnerships – doing things differently’. In recent times, important conversations have been taking place around the imbalance of power within High-Income Country to Low-and Middle-Income Country global health partnerships. At our conference we explored some of these issues and considered measures to ensure that we work fairly, equitably and maximise on the two-way learning and benefits of global partnerships.

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 Big Conversations in Health Partnership Working and Doing Things Differently in Practice, were recorded and can be viewed below.
