Sheffield International Health Interest Group (SIHI)

The Sheffield International Health Interest Group (SIHI) consists of a network of academic staff, students, clinicians and researchers seeking to take forward research, teaching and scholarship in the broad area of international health.

The Group meets to discuss key issues in international health, research outputs and new research opportunties, and is also actively involved in progressing educational opportunities for students abroad, including research placements and international internships.

We advocate the participation in community projects while promoting awareness of global health issues.
