The Board of International Affairs (BIA) established special groups of overseas psychiatrists working in different parts of the world.

  • One of the first undertakings of the Board was to set up College international groups in areas which had large numbers of College Members and Fellows, such as South Asia and Africa.

  • In 2002 and 2003 Council endorsed the establishment of the Pan-African and South Asian International Groups which brought the number of International Groups to four, all of them active at the College annual meetings as well as regional meetings including sessions at the APA and WPA meetings.


International divisions of the college

INTERNATIONAL DIVISIONS OF THE COLLEGE

In April 2004 the Privy Council of the UK Government approved several amendments to the College Bye-laws. The amendment to Section XXIVB of the Bye-law stipulates that:

“There may be such International Divisions, in areas outside the United Kingdom and outside Ireland, so constituted and with such organisation as may from time to time be prescribed by the Regulations, for the purpose of providing for discussion and exchange of information locally.”

  • To provide information on developments in psychiatry within the Royal College and at the Regional & International levels that will benefit the mental health of the population, which Members of the College serve.

  • To provide a profile of psychiatric practice around the world, advances and problems in relation to education, training, research and policies in different countries and a means of communication and networking for Members and organisations with similar interests and mandates as the Royal College of Psychiatrists.


Senior volunteers programme

SENIOR VOLUNTEERS PROGRAMME

It seems the College can provide a vital link between those members in the UK who would be willing to offer help and those overseas members who need it.

The idea for the project is that, the resources available in the UK can readily be utilised in low income countries where there is a great need for help in relation to curriculum development, teaching, examining, service development, clinical governance, administration, specific research, research training, etc.


Special group for relief work in disaster

SPECIAL GROUP FOR RELIEF WORK IN DISASTER

The College with active help from BIA has established a special group looking at Tsunami relief work for

  • Co-ordination of activities

  • Planning training programmes

  • Helping local professionals in service provision


Sub committee on iraq

SUB-COMMITTEE ON IRAQ

  • The Board recognises the need to undertake action to help Iraqi colleagues, both in Iraq and in the UK, with their efforts to re-establish and develop mental health services in Iraq and to develop psychiatric training. There are several groups currently operating in the UK in this field and the Board believes the College’s role should be to facilitate and perhaps co-ordinate their activities.


China task force

CHINA TASK FORCE

Director of International Affairs has been invited to join, on behalf of the College, the China Task Force set up by the Department of Health. The Task Force has met three times to date and established the following points:

  • Over the past two years the DoH / UKT&I has hosted eight visits from China

  • The Chinese delegates were particularly interested in 3 key areas: (1) model of primary care, (2) building programmes financed via PPP/PFI and (3) medical education and training programmes of the Royal Colleges.

  • China has been recognised within Government as being very important and a joint Anglo / Chinese task force led by the respective Deputy Prime Ministers had been created to develop partnerships in five priority sectors of which healthcare was one.


Future

FUTURE

  • Opportunity to learn from other countries experiences of cultural differences, a variety of treatment approaches and so on.

  • The BIA is hoping to become involved not just with the English speaking Commonwealth countries, but increasingly with the countries in the European Economic Area, Latin America and elsewhere, to advocate actively equality of mental health worldwide.

    To achieve this, the support of all College Members and fellows is vital.


Future1

FUTURE

  • Continuing contribution to international education and training
