International collaborations on health bring mutual benefits for all

The International Health Coordination Centre (IHCC) at Public Health Wales has detailed how supporting, strengthening and championing international and global health activity directly benefits people in Wales and beyond.

The IHCC progress report 2018-2022 explains how working together with other countries during the Coronavirus pandemic enabled NHS Wales to be more resilient and globally responsible.

The report highlights the IHCC’s role, achievements, ways of working, collaborative structures and activities; and outlines the evolution of the IHCC in relation to global, UK, national and local developments. These include challenges and opportunities such as the UK withdrawal from the European Union (‘Brexit’), the COVID-19 pandemic and the ‘cost of living’ crisis. It demonstrates the tools used to enable shared learning, facilitate cross-NHS and cross-sector synergies, and maximise benefits to the health and well-being of the people in Wales and beyond.
