THET is pleased to announce our second COVID Partnerships conference in partnership with the ESTHER Alliance and ACHEST. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved by the Health Partnership community since our Partnerships in a time of COVID conference last April, and look to the future, recognising the immense pressure that is now falling on health workers in every country.
We are especially motivated to organise this free conference at this time, because of the deeply worrying increases in infections and the slow pace of vaccination campaigns in sub-Saharan Africa observed since the start of 2021. It feels important to look afresh at how the Health Partnership community is pulling together, when solidarity is more important than ever. We will meet with humility, recognising that we have much to learn from each other.

Prompted by COVID-19 restrictions and in recognition of the longer- term challenge posed by the climate crisis, it has become increasingly important to make good use of digital technology in Welsh Health Partnerships. In this session we will explore the key principles you need to consider when working collaboratively and share tools and resources to help you use technology effectively. This is also a unique opportunity to learn about Pulse, THET’s community platform which will be launching in March.
Individual health workers are at the forefront of the response to COVID-19 and under almost unprecedented strain. As the pandemic passes from one continent to the other, affecting all in turn, how can health workers best support each other across borders? Drawing on THET’s long experience of fostering Health Partnership working, and organised in partnership with the ESTHER Alliance and Medics Academy and with speakers from WHO, this day-long online conference explored the options open to individual health workers and the institutions they are part of, to express solidarity at a time of Covid-19.
