About Us

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.  

Think Global, Act Local

Our vision

Our mission 

Is to channel youth passion and talent to create a positive change in people’s health, from spreading knowledge about global and planetary health topics to concretely improving the quality and accessibility of health care in low-income settings

Collaborate on a project with us

Is your organization interested in working together on a project?

SOGH is a small volunteer-based organization. While we are always happy to hear about new opportunities and excited about possible new collaborations, there are a couple of things to keep in mind when contacting us:

  • we are a small organization and therefore cannot provide funds for projects
  • please contact us with a specific project or idea and explain how you think our organizations could work together

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
