The HSE works closely with the Irish Forum for Global Health in activities to enable health staff to network with others and participate in training activities, discussion forums, conferences, workshops, etc. The Forum is a rich source of information about global health and key events in Ireland. You can participate in the Forum and receive regular emails by signing up to the eForum on the website: www.globalhealth.ie
The Irish Forum for Global Health is an independent network of people from many backgrounds who are concerned with issues that impact on the health and development of populations at a global level, but with a particular commitment to populations in low income countries. Established in 2004, it continues to welcome individuals interested in and committed to promoting global health related education, research and advocacy. In 2015, the Forum continues to bring together a large number of like-minded people, coming from different organisational backgrounds and committed and working together for global health. The Forum not only provides the opportunity for those in Ireland to link and develop opportunities with each other, but also provides the opportunity for international linkages. Two HSE personnel sit on the Board of the IFGH, including Dr David Weakliam as the Chair.
