During this year’s Wales and Africa Health Links Network annual conference, we launched the Review of Welsh Health Partnerships and a Rapid Review of International Health Activity:

Wales’s Health Partnerships with Africa: Maximising potential for mutual benefit

Wales has a long history of positive engagement with low- and middle-income countries, and we are now at a moment of considerable opportunity. As we rebuild after a pandemic that has exposed global inequities and interconnections, the Welsh Government has commissioned this report, which considers activity between Wales and sub-Saharan Africa. It has a focus on Official Development Assistance (ODA) funding opportunities and an eye to maximising the benefits of global engagement to NHS Wales.

International Health Activity in Wales | Rapid Review

This review documents the considerable assets Wales has at its disposal in the international health space, looking across all sectors. Wales is home to world-leading universities, a unified health and care system, a thriving life sciences commercial sector and energetic, global non-profit activity, all supported by outward and forward-looking national policies. The review considers the ways in which Wales can increase the value of its engagement in international health, to benefit the country commercially and reputationally.
