ABOUT

Swedish Organization for Global Health (SOGH) is a Swedish non-profit and non-governmental organization comprised  of students and young professionals who share a passion to contribute to global health through evidence-based action. Together with our local and international partners, we engage in conversations with local communities to co-develop projects that bring a concrete positive change and take environmental and economic sustainability into account . While supporting projects both in Sweden and in low-income countries, we use our virtual and physical platforms to bring awareness about some of the most neglected health topics, such as women’s reproductive health.

OUR PROJECTS

Since 2014 SOGH  works in collaboration with local leaders and in partnership with Uganda Development and Health Associates (UDHA) to provide effective support to women and infants during pregnancy and after childbirth in the Mayuge District in Southeastern Uganda where 1 in 49 women die from pregnancy and childbirth-related causes.
Ekibadha: Our periods matter is a project on menstrual health in Uganda. Menstruation is still a taboo that effects the health of people who menstruate all around the world. In partnership with our longterm partner UDHA and ARCHIVE Global, SOGH has conducted a pilot study among girls and women in the Mayuge District in Southeastern Uganda.
Tanden Frisk is a project aiming at educating both children and parents, especially from socioeconomically deprived areas in Stockholm, in oral health care. Studies show a continuing inequality regarding oral health and caries frequency based on socioeconomic factors. This inequality is something that Tanden Frisk works to diminish though workshops.
