Cambridge Global Challenges


Over the past 10 years, Addenbrookes Abroad has established four global health partnerships across Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. Their volunteers have improved healthcare delivered to millions of patients in over 59 countries.

On 23 November Addenbrookes Abroad will be celebrating these achievements, by showcasing their longest running partnership with Botswana and launching a 10-year impact report. There will be two keynote speakers: Shenaaz El-Halabi, Permanent Secretary at the Botswana Ministry of Health and Wellness, who will be talking about the role of health partnerships in tackling the global health issues that affect us all; and Andrew Bastawrous, eye surgeon and social entrepreneur, speaking on Peek (Portable Eye Examination Kit) Vision and the importance of cross-sector collaboration to improve eye health services in low- and middle-income countries.

The keynote addresses will be followed by canapes and a networking reception.
