The partnership has centred around national congresses which attract up to 1,500 staff from maternity and neonatal care hospitals across El Salvador, and have been combined with reciprocal working visits by El Salvadorian clinical staff to the UK. The congresses provide specialised practical training for healthcare workers in how to manage and treat obstetric and neonatal emergencies.

In 2017 we carried out a Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis on this longstanding partnership, which indicated that for every £1 invested we delivered approximately £3 of social value.
What is a health partnership?
A long-term link between health institutions in high and low/middle-income countries, health partnerships facilitate the flow of ideas and expertise between the different healthcare systems to strengthen services and improve patient outcomes. Health partnerships achieve this through training programmes, sharing and learning, based on the healthcare needs of the overseas partner.
