We had the pleasure of presenting at the Imperial College School of Medicine’s Global Health Short Course last week, where our CEO Monowara gave a session on global health in practice through a medical programme lens.
We gave our insight on how Doctors Worldwide identifies, designs and implements our programmes in environments with limited resources, as well as outlining our key considerations and why we make them. We also touched upon the medical humanitarian response in a crisis or emergency situation, and how 80% of first-responders are normally local communities, giving examples of the roles we play in supporting and strengthening these people.
If you’re interested in learning more, and even starting a career in humanitarian medicine, then Doctors Worldwide’s Humanitarian Medical Aid Course could be the ideal opportunity for you. Now in its 13th year, and running on the 5th and 6th of October at the Welcome Collective in Euston, London, it will provide two days of engaging lectures, first hand experienced speakers and simulated disaster scenarios. You can book your tickets online here.
