THET believes that we can greatly improve the chances of achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by actively championing new forms of development such as the health partnership approach and by sharing the experience gathered from our country programmes. Last UHC day THET published a UHC Annual Report Card highlighting what we’d achieved over the year against the commitments we’d made. One year on we check on progress made and explore future commitments.
The Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET) was engaged by the SUN Fund Management to develop a strategy for the alignment of the diploma in Food and Nutrition from NRDC and the BSc in Human Nutrition from UNZA. A preliminary step was a consultation exercise to examine the need for and any obstacles to alignment. This step was conducted in 2015; the report concluded that an alignment was desirable and feasible, and led to specific recommendations around the possible composition of the aligned courses (Barker 2015).
This report was commissioned by THET as part of its work on improving biomedical engineering capacity within Zambia. It presents the key findings of an exercise undertaken to map and analyze the HTM polices and procedures within Copperbelt health facilities, the province’s Provincial Medical Office (PMO) and the MoH itself. The report aims to represent the key processes, institutions and practices related to HTM within the Zambian health system in order to establish a clear picture of medical equipment management from planning and budgeting activities at the
Ministry of Health to maintenance and use of equipment in Zambian health facilities. The report does this in order to identify specific changes and activities required to improve HTM in the Zambian health system, and provide recommendations for ways forward in terms of HTM at central, provincial and facility level.
This THET-commissioned report provides an analysis of current approaches to social inclusion in the Health Partnership Scheme (HPS) and recommends ways to address the barriers that prevent disadvantaged populations from benefiting equally from health partnership-led improvements to health services.
The annual review summarises programme performance, agreed actions and learning over the review period course. This is based on information THET compiles from health partnership reports and our own activities and reflections. In 2014/15 DFID rated the HPS performance against outputs at “A” – outputs met expectation.
Capacity Development International
THET welcomes the International Health Links Funding Scheme evaluation by Capacity Development International. The IHLFS aimed to strengthen the health services capacity in developing countries by supporting over a hundred health links, each between a UK health institution and a developing country counterpart.
This review covers the period July 2014 to June 2015. During this period HCS has improved its overall score to A+. In the year under review, the implementing partners have exceeded most of the milestones by making steady progress and by delivering against the planned output level results.
At THET we believe health partnerships run better health projects than individual institutions or experts. It’s plausible that the trust, understanding & resources in a strong partnership lead to effective, sustainable health systems strengthening. But is it true?
Written evidence submitted by The Tropical Health & Education Trust (THET) to the Commons Select Committee inquiry “Follow-up to Responses to the Ebola Crisis”
THET hosted a Health Partnerships Symposium on 28th February and 1st March 2017 in Tanzania. Ninety global health actors including health partnership representatives from 14 countries in Africa, Asia and the UK attended.
The Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 (GSHRH) will support WHO, Member States and partners - at global, regional & country levels- to address health workforce challenges to progress towards Universal Health Coverage.
An executive summary of research by University of Winchester’s Dr Maru Mormina, on the Training of Trainers (ToT) model. The framework developed from this may act as a blueprint against which Health Partnership ToT interventions can be mapped.
