Images and stories play a vital role in helping us to create a world where everyone, everywhere has access to quality healthcare.
THET has a vision of a world where everyone, everywhere has access to quality 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. To do this we need to inspire and motivate a huge number of people.
Images and stories play a vital role in helping us do this. They help us raise awareness, bring our work to life and from part of training and development. The images and stories we choose to represent our work must provide a true and accurate reflection and align with our partnership principle of respect.
We strive to ensure that all those involved in THET’s communications are operating within the highest ethical standards and feel equipped to ethically gather, produce and disseminate various forms of content, as outlined in THET’s Ethical Storytelling Code of Conduct.
In line with our Principles of Partnership, we must always treat people with respect and dignity. Acquiring informed consent is a crucial step within that relationship. Informed consent means that a person gives THET permission to take and use their image and/or content whilst understanding the full consequences of this.
For further details, please take a look at our Ethical Storytelling Code of Conduct.
THET has developed different consent forms for different people and settings.
