King's Global Health Partnerships

Strengthening health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa: Opportunities for KHP staff to engage in global health programmes.

King's Global Health Partnerships (KGHP) works with health facilities, academic institutions and governments to strengthen health systems and improve the quality of care in four countries: Somaliland, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zambia.

We bring together expertise from King’s College London, King’s Health Partners’ NHS Trusts and our international partners to:

  • Educate, train and support healthcare workers
  • Strengthen healthcare and training institutions
  • Enhance national health policies and systems

We connect UK and African health professionals, providing training, mentoring and hands-on support; and undertake collaborative research to inform policy and practice. We also support our partners by providing access to funding, networks and development opportunities. 

Through these long-term partnerships and our volunteering scheme we promote skills and knowledge exchange. This mutual learning contributes to building a stronger health workforce and improved quality of healthcare both internationally and in the UK.

I believe that we are laying a foundation upon which we can have greater impact in our partner countries, strengthen our partnerships, realise more significant benefit across King’s Health Partners and have wider influence within the development, health professional and academic sectors.
