Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP) works to improve healthcare globally utilising our unique position situated on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus – an internationally recognised centre of excellence in health care, research and education.
CGHP functions as a hub for NHS staff, academics and students interested in global health from Cambridge and across the East of England region, providing specialist support and grants, events, networking opportunities, and training to ensure safe, effective and ethical engagement in global health.
CGHP coordinates a series of health partnerships between Cambridge-based healthcare and academic institutions, and similar organisations in countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. This sustainable model ensures lasting change, benefitting overseas partners, UK volunteers, and healthcare institutions and their patients; a triple win.
Just because someone can do something doesn’t mean they will. This is the fundamental reason why The Change Exchange exists: to support project teams to make change happen by translating behavioural science in to practice.
We use state of the art behavioural science to help teams use behavioural methods and theories in their health partnership work and interventions. We also support teams to develop evaluations that answer not only whether interventions are successful but also how to improve them. Unlike organisational change management consultants, we are experts in the behaviour of individuals. After all, it is the individual who is expected to make changes for organisations to implement change. Our scientific starting points are that behaviour is both automatic and reflective, action and coping plans are not often used in education and might help educators bring about change.
Most health professional training, aims to change the practice of people attending. Sometimes this is following new clinical guidelines, implementing new local practices or changing the way a service is delivered. The list is endless. Despite the aim being behaviour change, the courses are often not evaluated for behaviour change or influences on behaviour. We work in a variety of ways with teams: sourcing and supervising volunteer behavioural scientists, providing consultancy or training, and we work both remotely and in country, to bring about effective behaviour change.
