King's Global Health Partnerships

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 Somaliland, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zambia.

KGHP brings together expertise from King’s College London, King’s Health Partners’ NHS Foundation Trusts, and international partners to:

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

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

Global volunteering scheme

King’s Global Health Partnerships recruits hundreds of volunteers from the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and internationally, and connects them with health professionals in Somaliland, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zambia.

Through these long-term partnerships, KGHP promote skills and knowledge exchange, and mutual learning that contribute to building a stronger health workforce and improved quality of healthcare both internationally and back in the UK.
