THET seeks to improve health care for all by working in partnership with others.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has forecast a global shortfall of 4.2 million health workers by 2015. The health workforce crisis is a critical constraint to progress in many lower and middle income countries. Without an adequately trained and appropriately distributed health workforce, countries cannot run effective health systems or meet the basic human right of access to essential healthcare.
Meanwhile, as the global distribution of wealth shifts and the economic profiles of individual countries change, so too does the pattern of disease, the health burden and what is expected and required of health systems. Technological advances are rapidly expanding the ways in which we share knowledge and experience across country borders. All, not just lower income countries, are evolving and there is a great opportunity for us to learn from one another and to work together in partnership to improve healthcare for all.
THET is a specialist global health organisation that educates, trains and supports health workers through partnerships, strengthening health systems and enabling people in low and middle income countries to access essential healthcare.
