On Monday the 8th Nov 2021, we had the honour of welcoming a group of BSc Global Health Students from Imperial College London as part of their Community Group Placement (CGP) with us.
The students will remain with us for another 5 weekly sessions to learn about the socio-demographic profile and health and disease profile of the Gurkha community.
The sessions are expected to help students map the needs of the Gurkha community and the services available to them, both inside and outside The Gurkha Centre.
We will be sharing our organisational goals, values and mission as well as the services we provide and the challenges we have faced or will potentially be facing in the delivery of service and support for our beneficiaries.
By the end of the sessions, the students will be able to analyse challenges we have faced or are facing and provide suggestions and strategic advice on how to overcome these challenges and improve our services.
We are looking forward to the future sessions and hope that the students will have invaluable insights of the community and its health.
