Volunteering is at the heart of the Health Partnership Scheme.

THET’s vision is to deliver effective, appropriate contributions to developing country health systems and create an enabling environment where volunteering is recognised as an integral part of a UK health professional’s career valued by employers and employees alike.

HPS will fund long-term volunteering programmes, help address barriers to volunteering, deliver effective development interventions, develop models of good practice and share learning across partnerships and the UK health sector as a whole.
