Abstract

• The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has a long history of advocacy for women’s health, nationally and internationally.
• There is a demand and interest in global women’s health among a sample of junior doctors training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the UK.
• There is ongoing debate regarding whether this desire should be nurtured, opportunities created, and barriers addressed, both in the interest of training and as a means of addressing global health inequity.
• Global health work needs to be a mutually beneficial partnership for all involved, with work carried out sensitively and sustainably.
