The Knowledge Centre Global Health (KCGH) aims to support knowledge exchange in the field of global health. We achieve this by connecting healthcare and global health professionals, making global health knowledge more accessible, learning from it, and thereby promoting its application in the Dutch healthcare system.


As global health professionals we are deeply concerned about the human suffering in Gaza and Israel. Some members of the NVTG are also directly involved through their professional activities.

We would like to echo WHO's call for "for the immediate active protection of civilians and health care. Evacuation orders must be reversed. International humanitarian law must be abided by, which means health care must be actively protected and never targeted."
