Integrating Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) into Health Programs: Guidance and Reflections (Webinar)

21st September, 13:00-14:30 BST

You are invited to attend an upcoming webinar on integrating gender equality and social inclusion into health programs!

Evidence shows that gender inequality and social exclusion are inextricably linked to social, economic and health outcomes as root causes of poor health and wellbeing. In addition, efforts to address gender inequality and social exclusion lead to long-lasting and sustainable change. We argue that a Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) approach is therefore essential for the success of global health programs and initiatives.

This webinar will explore what a GESI approach is and how it can be integrated into global health programs and initiatives. Using the Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Toolkit for Health Partnerships, created by LSTM and THET, as a guide, it will discuss key activities and tools that can be used to take a GESI approach. Reflections on integrating GESI into health systems programs through the UK Partnerships for Health Systems, including challenges and opportunities, will also be provided.

Fundraising Strategy Workshop for Health Partnerships

26th October, 10:00-11:30 BST

Following the cancellation of the UK Partnerships for Health Systems (UKPHS) programme, we held a meeting on 28th May to discuss how we can best work together as a community and the support that THET could provide.

Due to the feedback received, we have set up a workshop on fundraising strategies in partnership with Paula Alionyte, Founder and Consultant at Charity Boost. This is part of a series of workshops that will be delivered by THET from September 2021 into early 2022.

Any suggestions for discussion items that Partners would like to hear about would be welcomed so that the content of the session is as beneficial to you as possible. Please contact grants@thet.org.

Partnerships in a time of COVID-19

At our second COVID Partnerships conference in partnership with the ESTHER Alliance and ACHEST, participants had 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 were especially motivated to organise this free conference 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 felt important to look afresh at how the Health Partnership community is pulling together, when solidarity is more important than ever.

Partnerships in a time of COVID-19 | Virtual Conference

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.

Catch up series is now available online!
