Funded by Health Education England and managed by THET, Round 2 of the GPBHP will see up to 10 Health Partnerships receive funding to enable England’s NHS workforce to engage in global health by supporting partners in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Partnerships can bid for bursaries of up to £5,000 for virtual or in-person volunteering placements running from September 2022 to February 2023. These placements are designed to lay the groundwork for, or to conduct, training and capacity development to LMIC health institutions, while demonstrating benefits back to the NHS in England.

Health Partnerships can also apply for projects with a specific focus on health worker wellbeing.

Key information

  • Bursaries are available for partnerships between the UK any low or middle-income country.
