Health workers are at the centre of what we do. Without them, there is no healthcare.

THET has a vision of a world where everyone has access to healthcare. We achieve this by training and educating health workers in Africa and Asia, working in partnership with organisations and volunteers from across the UK. Founded in 1988 by Professor Sir Eldryd Parry, we are the only UK charity with this focus.

Over the past nine years we have 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.

From reducing maternal deaths in Uganda to improving the quality of hospital care for injured children in Myanmar, we work to strengthen local health systems and build a healthier future for all.

In the past nine years alone, THET has reached over 100,000 health workers across 31 countries in Africa and Asia in partnership with over 130 UK institutions.

Call to Action – UK Partnerships for Health Systems

The UK Partnerships for Health Systems (UKPHS) programme aims to support low and lower-middle income countries (LMICs) build stronger, more resilient health systems and make progress towards universal health coverage through improved health service performance for poor and vulnerable populations. To do this, the programme will provide the health workforce with opportunities to improve skills and knowledge, build on institutional capacity to decrease reliance on external support, and improve the governance and management of health institutions.
