Working internationally

Who is pledged to the Charter?

Each of the 10 Health Boards and Trusts in Wales pledged to support the Charter in 2014. Health Boards have locality based remits, whereas Trusts have national remits.

How is the progress of the Charter monitored?

Benchmarking was carried out in 2016 to determine the progress made towards the implementation of the Charter. This identified areas which required additional attention, and resulted in the establishment of task and finish groups working on specific areas, such as Global Citizenship.

What kind of help can I get from the IHCC regarding funding opportunities?

The IHCC can:

  • Inform you: The IHCC can provide relevant general and tailored information on current calls and application processes in line with an organisation’s priorities.
  • Help you network: As a member of EuroHealthNet and WHO Regions for Health Network, the IHCC can introduce Welsh organisations to relevant potential partners as well as other networks across the UK and Europe.
  • Refer you to experts: The IHCC is developing a network of individuals and institutions that would be able to provide expert advice and support on funding and grant proposals.
How do I know whether a specific funding stream has calls for proposal open at the moment?
