Our team on the war in Ukraine:
“It goes without saying that we, the SOGH team, are against this war, as we are against any violent conflict that is happening in the world right now. We stand in solidarity with all the people affected by the war in Ukraine, from the Ukrainian citizens who are fleeing their home country to the Russians who are experiencing hate, and abuse by their own government. We also stand with all those people who were discriminated against at the Ukrainian boulders.”

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.
