This year the DHC will take place from 8-20 July at the London School of Theology in North London. Accommodation and food is included in the course cost.

The course is designed to update, equip and inspire people who are committed to global health, whether you are preparing to go, returning after a break or considering the possibility of service abroad.

The course material now emphasises the broader context of healthcare across the world and covers topics like global health, medicine, mental health, paediatrics, surgery, and women's health. There are also a couple of sessions on problem solving in areas such as HIV, palliative care, managing an epidemic and emergency medicine.

Nurses: 2018 will continue a nurses 'stream' of learning together about nursing in resource poor countries. Come and be a part of this!
