Save the date! 23, 24, 25 October 2017 at Resource for London, N7 6PA. We are pleased to announce that, due to a high level of interest and demand, this year for the first time the THET Annual Conference will be held over three days.


What contributions is the UK making to global health? The Conference will feature over seventy speakers representing a broad spectrum of backgrounds in global health and development. The event is designed to enhance knowledge transfer between experts and participants, as well as to promote collaborative learning. Whereas health partnerships remain the lens through which we observe the development world, in 2017 we take a broader look at the challenges we are facing in global health and how the NHS is responding. 

Overall the event is expected to welcome over 600 delegates from across the NHS and the global health sector.  

Early bird tickets available soon, check this page and our social media for updates!


Day 1

Whilst the theme of the 2016 THET conference was ‘Impact, Evidence and Effectiveness’, reflecting on the impact of health partnership work, this year Day 1 will focus on next steps: building the capacity of existing health partnerships to maximise their efficiency, effectiveness and their reach in future work.

Under the theme of ‘Sustainability and Scale-up’, this day will be an opportunity for health partnerships, from low- and middle-income countries and the UK to gain insights, build skills, as well as learn from others on how to ensure the sustainability of their outcomes, how to scale up successful models for greater impact and reach, and how to improve their capacity to be able to meet these ambitions.

If you are attending Day 1, we also advise you attend Day 2.


Day 2

Day 2  will put you in touch with some of the most inspiring and well-informed speakers in global health. The day will give you a clear view of what the current challenges in global health are, from the spread of new viruses to mental health, and how the NHS is mobilizing to meet these challenges. Alongside inspirational keynote speakers you will be able to interact with like-minded colleagues and leave feeling fluent in the issues that matter as we work to deliver universal health coverage to every citizen.


Day 3

Do you work in the NHS? Are you looking to get more involved in global health activities? Day 3 is an opportunity for you to spend time with some of your most experienced colleagues following a structured programme of workshops built around THET’s Principles of Partnership which draw together five+ years of experience across 200 projects. You will end the day with a firm grasp of what working in a health partnership involves and with a strong insight in to some of the theory and practicalities of volunteering in low and middle-income countries.

If you are attending Day 3, we also advise you attend Day 2.
