“To make global health truly global is to make global health truly local.” Seye Abimbola, Editor-in-Chief, BMJ Global Health

Does Global Health still mimic our colonial past? Are we perpetuating historical biases and disparities in the field? Is the transfer of knowledge, skill and funding in Global Health unfairly unidirectional? How can we dismantle skewed power structures to make Global Health truly local?

If these are questions that pique your interest, then join the School of Population Health for a politically charged conversation on what it means to truly decolonise global health and what we as a university can do to disrupt the system.
