We champion the contribution health workers are making to the development of our societies.
In support of our mission, we develop policy positions and resources, participate in consultations, write commentary and actively engage in global health forums in the UK, in the countries where we work, and internationally. We do so in partnership with governments, the private sector, the NHS and our own community of international development organisations. At an international level, we are in an official relationship with the World Health Organization.
Our latest policy paper In Our Mutual Interest shares the learning acquired by THET over many years working at the heart of the health partnership movement. Examining the opportunities and challenges associated with this approach, this report points to the huge benefit that can be derived by both the UK and our partners and governments overseas when the right balance is struck between our own organisational and national interest, and the interest of people living in some of the world’s poorest countries.
