HPS presentation series: Long-term volunteer contributions to health partnerships: how to make it a success
Thursday 15th June 2017 - Time: 12pm-1pm
This webinar will be the opportunity for health partners and others in the health sector to learn about long-term volunteer contributions to health partnerships and global health programmes. The session will consist of short presentations from a range of speakers sharing their experiences on what needs to be in place to make long-term volunteering (LTV) a success at each stage of a programme, a project or a partnership in low- and middle-income countries. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A during which participants will be able to ask questions, exchange ideas and lessons learnt from long-term volunteering. Finally, there will also be time for presenters and attendees to discuss future opportunities and actions to take forward for long-term volunteering.

HPS Presentation Series
Every two months, THET will now be hosting a series of thematic webinars showcasing the diverse range of projects currently delivered by health partnerships. They will enable UK and overseas partners to get a good sense of the fantastic work currently being delivered by other partnerships across sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, ask questions about the work, and will allow regular shared learning across the health partnership community.
We would also encourage others who are interested in the work of health partnerships, the HPS, or global health generally to register and find out more.
For each webinar we will invite three or four partners to each make a 10 minute presentation on the work of their partnership and their current HPS project. If you are an HPS grant holder and would like to deliver a thematic presentation but have yet to hear from us, please get in touch.
For those unable to attend webinars on the date shown, you will be able to view the recordings shortly afterwards on our YouTube channel. You can view the webinars below:
