Dr Dan addresses Tropical Health and Education Trust Reception to launch new global health report

On Thursday 20 October, Dr Dan was delighted to address a reception to launch the Tropical Health and Education Trust's (THET) latest policy report, In Our Mutual Interest. The report pulls together the learning acquired by THET over many years working in international health partnerships. By examining the opportunities and challenges associated with health partnerships, the report highlights the significant benefits that can be derived by both the UK and its partners and governments overseas, all in the best interests of those living in some of the world's poorest countries.

In addressing the reception, Dr Dan talked of the many challenges facing global health today and also about the contribution which our own NHS makes to global health.

More locally, Staff from Ipswich Hospital have already hosted a visit from Central Hospital, Beira in Mozambique, as part of a pioneering health partnership. Ipswich – Beira is one of 157 partnerships under the "Health Partnerships Scheme" funded by the UK's Department of International Development and managed by THET.

Dr Dan is encouraged that health partnerships such as these connect skilled healthcare professionals in hospitals here in the UK, with their counterparts overseas where they can share their expertise and offer practical help in improving health services for those living in some of the poorest parts of the world.
