The UK as a global centre for health and health science – a go-to place for all aspects of health

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health's latest report, titled 'The UK as a global centre for health and health science - a go-to place for all aspects of health globally' is now available to download.

The new report from parliamentarians argues that the UK can play an even greater role in health and health science globally. The UK is already a leader in health and the related sciences. It has world class universities and research, is a global leader in health policy and international development, has strong life sciences and bio-medical and bio-tech industries, and a vibrant and diverse not-for-profit sector.

The report argues that the UK should give this role even greater priority and that further planning, collaboration and targeted investment will enable the UK to become a truly global centre for health and health science.

This report follows on from the APPG’s 2015 report on the UK’s contribution to health globally, which mapped out the UK’s health related activity in academia, government, commerce and the not-for-profit sector. The new report is a far shorter update which describes what has changed since and collates the perceptions of the UK’s role in health from experts based inside and outside of the UK.
