To provide a parliamentary platform to identify and debate global health issues and concerns, raise the profile of global health within Parliament and government, and to prepare reports and make recommendations as appropriate.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
