Further and Higher Education-led Health Partnerships

1 May 2019

Working with universities across Scotland, the SMP hosted a meeting looking at coordination and collaboration between Scotland’s Further and Higher Education led health projects with Malawi.

Taking place on Wednesday 1st May in Edinburgh, the meeting heard from university groups recently returned from Malawi, shared information about who is doing what in terms of health projects, and explored how best to support coordination and collaboration. 

It built on outcomes from recent meetings of the SMP’s existing Health Forum and Further and Higher Education Forum, with members of these two forums especially encouraged to attend.

All were welcome to attend this meeting but we especially invited those from Higher and Further Education institutions involved in any aspect of ‘planetary health’.

The meeting took place immediately before the next Malawi Cross Party Group meeting in the Scottish Parliament, which also included updates from health projects.
