Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET)

THET is a global health organisation that trains and supports health workers through health partnerships, enabling people in low and middle income countries to access essential healthcare. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 7.2 million additional health workers are needed worldwide. Health workers are vital to ensuring the health of populations around the world. This lack of human resources for health is a critical constraint to sustainable development in many lower- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
