THE conference

COVID-19 is not the only crisis we have faced in this last year, a myriad of challenges have tested our Partnerships, communities and health systems. From war to climate change and from inequity to funding cuts we have stood together in the midst of this global shift.  

 

New voices are mobilizing alongside established players, driven by considerations of technology, geography, race, inequality, and the value afforded the expertise of different cadres of health workers.  

 

This inspires us to think afresh about who are the experts, and how we can strengthen partnerships in a highly contested world. As Moazzam Malik, former DG of FCDO has said, the answer to a more contested world, is not endless contestation, but endless collaboration.  

 

This year’s THET Conference will be the most diverse to-date, providing a platform to celebrate those involved in Health Partnerships, and to welcome new partners. With an emphasis on people’s experiences of practical engagement at this time, the conference will inspire all involved to forge new relationships, individually and organizationally. 

 

Reframing Health Partnerships: Diverse Voices In A New Era will celebrate the bridges that are being built for the curious and the inquisitive, allowing participants from across the world to meet.

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

As the NHS workforce organisation for England, HEE is uniquely placed to support the NHS to become a global centre of excellence for workforce development. The HEE Directorate of Global Health Partnerships (GHP) does this by embedding global skills, learning and innovation, supporting local NHS organisations and systems to engage in global activity as a way to attract and retain staff, bringing experienced overseas staff to work in the NHS on placements; and also by playing a facilitative role to ensure the collective efforts and expertise of the NHS is coordinated and aligned to the overseas objectives of Government departments.

GHP focuses on using mutually beneficial partnerships which can deliver:

  • An offer to NHS staff for their learning and development

  • An offer to NHS organisations and systems delivering a high-quality workforce, and

  • An offer to global partners for mutual benefit from collaboration

Wellcome is a global charitable foundation established in 1936. Through their work, they support science to solve the urgent health issues facing everyone.
Wellcome fund curiosity-driven research, and they are taking on three of the biggest health challenges facing humanity – climate change, infectious disease, and mental health. They also work with policy makers, run advocacy campaigns, and form partnerships with other organisations to ensure everyone, everywhere benefits from advances in health science.

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. 

In the past 30 years, THET has evolved from a small family-run NGO to a larger entity, with staff in ten countries across Africa and Asia, and a range of projects spanning from community health to biomedical engineering. We work with governments, Ministries of Health, academics and clinicians to ensure THET is still driven by our founder’s original vision and principles: that our work should be responsive to national and local needs acknowledging the need for partnership and collaboration.
