Students from the UK and Viet Nam will work together to explore the relationship between climate change and healthcare in interprofessional groups.
As the importance of mental health and climate change continues to grow among young people in both countries, our programme aims to facilitate undergraduate students from various healthcare specialties to engage in discussions and collaborate on potential solutions. Through this programme, students will have the opportunity to consider these issues in tandem, share their ideas, and debate relevant concerns in an informal "shark tank" environment.
Members of the academic communities and the health sectors in both countries are encouraged to take part in this process by witnessing, supporting and contributing to the ongoing student dialogue.
About the collaborators
This project brings together healthcare students and academics from the UK (University of East Anglia) and five collaborating universities in Viet Nam (Nguyen Tat Thanh University, Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Tay Nguyen University, Buon Ma Thuot, Phenikaa University, Hanoi and Hanoi University of Medicine).
Our project aims to promote sustainable healthcare in Vietnam by expanding its scope to include students of nursing, midwifery, rehabilitation, medicine, and pharmacy throughout the country. Through this expansion, we aim to capture and share the experiences of young people, reflecting the diversity of the country's education systems and lifestyles.
