Healthcare Forum

Providing news, resources and information for those involved in mission healthcare
The Healthcare Forum is for all those interested in healthcare or medical work as an expression of Christian mission. This interest group has, in the past, addressed issues of concern to those working around the world in healthcare, with a view to promoting good practice and identifying key issues. We have recently been re-examining why and how people are involved in healthcare as mission, looking towards the future of healthcare mission.

The main role now is to provide an information service by sending out Healthcare Forum News - an e-bulletin - three times per year. In this we update members of the Healthcare Forum with news and information from within the GC healthcare network, including forthcoming events, information about resource organisations, others resources, news and more. This has become an invaluable information service for those in the network.

We also send out intermittent e-bulletins regarding other events throughout the year, are linked into the Integral Mission Forum and have recently run an event of the Sustainable Development Goals as they relate to health care issues.

The interest group is facilitated by Steve Fouch (CMF) and administered by Global Connections.
