Here at THET, partnership has been at the core of our work for over 30 years. We recognise that the incredible strides and achievements made by the global health community would not be possible without collaboration, solidarity, and investment.
In a time where partnership in global health is needed more than ever before, THET is excited to announce the launch of our HEAL (Health Equity for ALL) campaign. By platforming the voices and experiences of health workers in the UK and in low- and middle-income countries, we hope to increase support for UK Aid investments in global health.
We invite you to join us in making change. To build stronger health systems. To prioritise health equity. To unite with your fellow health workers – wherever they are in the world.
Why HEAL now?
The Covid-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on health inequities within and between countries. So too has it demonstrated that we are only as strong as we are united. It is against this backdrop that the British government has cut aid spending by £4bn. The damage caused by these cuts on the world’s most vulnerable cannot be understated. We must respond together.
It’s time to put the most vulnerable communities throughout the world at the front of the queue, not the back. It’s time to prioritise health equity. It’s time to HEAL.
Ready to Help HEAL?
You don’t have to be a campaigner or have advocacy experience to add your voice in support of global health investments.
Take a look at our Action Pack for Change which contains plenty of top tips, resources and guidance to help you challenge the status quo!

agree that health is central to human development and the reduction of poverty.
“I feel betrayed with the recent UK government decision to reduce international aid. We all live in a global village. It is not right for us to enjoy all prosperity when people in the world are dying due to lack of basic needs such as vaccines, clean water, and medicines for preventable diseases.”
