PROGRAMME

Four transformational streams!

THET'S 2019 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

TRANSFORMING GLOBAL HEALTH

THET’s 2019 conference will be built around four transformational streams that we believe will shape the health partnership contributions to quality Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in the years to come.

STREAM 1 I RESPONSIBLE

Morals and Quarrels in the Quest to Leave No One Behind.

International partnerships operate in a myriad of complexity. This stream will ask: whose responsibility is it to ensure everyone everywhere has access to healthcare? Who answers for patients detained in hospitals because they cannot afford to pay the medical bills in Kenya or for Sudanese refugees in need of palliative care in Uganda?

STREAM 2 I INNOVATIVE

Learning Globally, Leading Locally.

Finite resources define the operational environment for our partners working in the NHS and our partners overseas. This stream will explore how we are working to accelerate the discovery and adoption of innovations, in processes, services and design to help health professionals overseas and at home.

STREAM 3 I EQUITABLE

Myths and Principles in the Search for Equitable Partnerships.

How reciprocal are our programmes? Do we really invoke equal ownership? This stream will look at approaches to fostering LMIC leadership in the design, implementation and monitoring of projects. Exploring how diaspora engagement and fully harnessing the engine of creativity and knowledge that is held within LMICs can transform our approaches.

STREAM 4 I COLLABORATIVE

Health Workers and Beyond.

There is no health without health workers. In order to ensure the presence of trained health workers we must look beyond them to the systems in which they are positioned. This stream will look at how partners can develop a common ethos with organisations from governments and the private sector to advocacy and rights groups.
