31st July 2017 - InterHealth

We have been very sorry to learn of the forthcoming closure of InterHealth Worldwide, a travel health clinic which we have been associated with for the last 21 years. InterHealth was a major provider of travel medicine and psychological and occupational health services to the humanitarian and mission sector in the UK. Its closure will leave a gap which will be hard to fill. Further information can be found here.

In recent years our income from InterHealth has allowed us to continue subsidising our work with mission and humanitarian workers. With its closure, we will be raising our fees for organisations with immediate effect. We continue to have a flexible charging policy for individual humanitarian and mission workers who are not supported by an organisation, and can negotiate lower costs for those who cannot afford to pay. Please see our costs for details.

We will apply to the Charity Commission under section 75 of the 1993 Charities Act. We are required to give public notice of our resolution. Please feel free to forward this notice to anyone who might be interested, and also to contact us with any concerns or comments which you have about this.
