The Swedish Global Health Podcast

The Swedish Society of Medicine’s Committee for Global Health and the Swedish Society of Medicine’s Student and Junior Doctor Section are together producing a Podcast on the theme Global Health and Sustainable Development.

In this Podcast one student and one member of the Committee for Global Health have a dialogue with one or two experts in global health, discussing their research/work, what they think are the most pressing interventions needed to achieve the sustainable development goals, and how we can all contribute to equitable health and sustainable development.

The target audience is doctors, students, professionals and anyone interested in global health and sustainable development.

It is our hope that the Podcast will stir the discussion among students, youth, junior and senior professionals alike and, ultimately, push the engagement for global health!
