At a time when globalization has created a high degree of interdependence among national health systems, THEnet aims to place health equity, social accountability, and community engagement at the heart of health workforce education everywhere.
THEnet focuses on the role of education to affect meaningful changes in health disparities by mobilizing technological, intellectual, and political resources. THEnet fosters a wealth of partnerships that are taking root and blossoming into lasting relationships among all stakeholders in the system. And THEnet advocates for the transformation of health workforce education, engaging governments and policy-setting institutions at the regional, national, and global levels.
When schools are well resourced, outcome-oriented, and socially accountable, they produce the health workers the world needs. They also become hubs of research, analysis, and innovation.
Building on the success of our founding members to train a fit-for-purpose workforce for underserved areas and communities, THEnet supports reform by:
- Gathering evidence
- Developing the capacity of schools in disadvantaged regions and
- Advocating for socially accountable, community-engaged and results-oriented health workforce education.
THEnet is promoting a vision of healthy communities that relies on the cooperation of many sectors of society, including those responsible for education, service delivery, labor, transportation, housing, nutrition, sanitation, and financing.
Together with our partners, we are watering the seeds of change, overseeing their growth, and reaping a harvest of healthier, more resilient communities around the world.
