Partnerships in a time of COVID-19

THET Virtual Conference 2020

Individual health workers are at the forefront of the response to COVID-19 and under almost unprecedented strain. As the pandemic passes from one continent to the other, affecting all in turn, how can health workers best support each other across borders? Drawing on THET’s long experience of fostering Health Partnership working, and organised in partnership with the ESTHER Alliance and Medics Academy and with speakers from WHO, this day-long online conference will explore the options open to individual health workers and the institutions they are part of, to express solidarity at a time of Covid-19.

The Virtual Conference will be held on Saturday 25th April from 9.30am BST till 2.30pm GMT (10.30am CET - 15.30 CET)

Today, one billion people will never see a qualified health worker in their lives.

THET works to create a world where everyone, everywhere, has access to quality healthcare. We achieve this by training and educating health workers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in partnership with volunteers from across the UK health community. Founded in 1988 by Professor Sir Eldryd Parry, we are the only UK Charity with this focus.

We are best-known for our Health Partnership approach. Health Partnerships are a model for improving health services based on the idea of linking hospitals and clinics in the UK with their counterparts overseas.

Over the past nine years THET has partnered with over 130 NHS Trusts, Royal Colleges and academic institutions. We work closely with the British government, and are an organisation in Official Relations with the World Health Organization (WHO).

In the past 30 years, THET has evolved from a small family-run NGO to a larger entity, with six offices across Africa and Asia, and a range of projects spanning from community health to biomedical engineering.

THET is still driven by our founder’s original vision and principles: that our work should be responsive to national and local needs acknowledging that if there is mutual trust and a willingness on both sides to learn from each other, then good work will happen. This is the philosophy that THET is built on and one that we will continue to follow as we move forward.
