Students for Global Health ( UK branch of IFMSA):

An organisation, network and community. In our 20 year history, we have evolved from one passionate individual to a group of thousands of students from all over the United Kingdom, who are all passionate about creating a fair and just world in which equity in health is a reality for all.

At over 30 universities across the country, students meet and engage in global health issues. These local branches are run by branch committees and each of these is run differently and independently to suit their university! The branches then come together at national general assemblies to vote for national committee members, policies, trustees, and governing document changes!

The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA);

Established 1951, is the world’s oldest and largest independent organization representing associations of medical students internationally. It currently maintains 136 National Member Organizations from more than 127 countries with over one million students represented worldwide. 

IFMSA is recognized as a non-governmental organization within the United Nations system and the World Health Organization, and also works with the World Medical Association.

IFMSA was created to impact the world and to empower its members in taking their vision and ideas, and making them a reality. IFMSA has inspired generations of students to develop the leadership abilities and skills to take on challenges and to improve the world around them in an early yet crucial period of their career. Engaging in IFMSA encourages both professional and personal collaborations irrespective of geographical, social, cultural, religious, racial, sexual and political differences.


The IFMSA experience shows students that they are not merely passive subjects in a rapidly globalizing world but rather valuable individuals with a potentially powerful role to play in global health. IFMSA hence offers students a taste of the real and pressing health issues worldwide, and help them learn that their idealistic goals can be achieved with readily attainable knowledge and commitment.

In IFMSA, the emphasis is placed on students returning to their local environments with new ideas and the skills to implement them.
