Global Health Film Membership
What is a Global Health Film changemaker?
As a not-for-profit organisation, Global Health Film could not operate without the support of our members. They are a vitally important part of the work we aim to achieve.
Their support is not only monetary. Members are invited to get involved in discussions around topics, join the fight for change from a grassroots standpoint.
We need our members to help spread the word about the issues we’re bringing into the spotlight, to ignite those around them with the same passion they have for making the world a far better place.
In return for all the priceless support our members bring, we offer exclusive content, member-only events, the opportunity to network with likeminded and engaged people, who truly want to improve the world around us.
Everyone is welcome
The Global Health Film Membership is an amazing space full of doctors, scientists, and medical students. All looking to find better ways to serve their communities. Often inspired by situations they have found themselves in, or by issues that have been raised by those around them. They find community and education at Global Health Film which empowers them with knowledge and provides the tools to make change. Access to such invaluable research, contacts and organisations that will further enrich their area of study and expertise.
But, the membership is by no means exclusive to those within the medical field, changemakers come from all walks of life, after all, without diversity how can we spread the message for change?
The common denominator among all our members is the deep-seated passion for the care and wellbeing of everyone, and the desire to make improvements to the world we all live in.
"What I found most enlightening in joining the Global Health Film community were the panel discussions, where academics, filmmakers, protagonists, policymakers, health professionals, and students joined from all over the world to discuss various issues tackled in the films. I learnt a lot just from watching films, the lived experiences of protagonists, hearing the opinions of experts and people from various backgrounds, and being constantly challenged by different perspectives and interpretations.
These exposures helped me approach my studies and my current work with a much more critical, open and interdisciplinary mindset that I hope to continue developing with Global Health Film."
