British Medical Association - Humanitarian Fund (BMA]
The Department of Health (DH), the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) recognise that a significant number of NHS healthcare staff undertake international humanitarian work. Much of this work is aimed at helping developing countries and societies in transition to address significant challenges they may face in meeting the healthcare needs of their people.
In order to support current activities, and to encourage the development of new initiatives, the DH, BMA and RCN have made available a fund to cover incidental expenses of teams undertaking humanitarian projects. Applications to this fund may be made by any individual or staff group within the NHS or special health authority, with applications from multidisciplinary teams being particularly welcome.
