About us

The APPG on Global Health focusses on the underlying, cross-cutting health issues which affect us all wherever we live.

Through research and regular events, we offer recommendations and advice to Parliament and the Government on key policies impacting health in the UK and overseas.
We are led by our members, but also supported by academic institutions, the Lancet and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Together, these allow us to connect the interest, impact and knowledge of parliamentarians with the expertise and experience of the wider global health community.
Our activities come under three main categories:

  • Conducting evidence based reviews on topical global health issues
  • Hosting high-profile events, often with other APPGs or external partners
  • Providing ad-hoc briefings to our members on emerging global health issues

To find out about the group's current priorities and see our previous work, visit the reports page. To stay up to date with our events and other outputs, please sign up to our mailing list by writing to globalhealth@inparliament.uk.

The APPG on Global Health is supported by a number of global health organisations, who provide financing and other support to the group.



The APPG on Global Health comprises a team of Members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
