Virtual Volunteering Opportunities for Health Partnerships

THET is pleased to offer Virtual Volunteer bursaries to Health Partnerships with a history of implementing capacity development projects in Ethiopia, Myanmar, Somaliland, Tanzania and Uganda and Zambia.


Given the unprecedented changes in global health due to the Covid-19 pandemic, THET is seeking to expand the ways in which the UK health workforce can continue to support partners in LMICs. Remote or virtual volunteering provides an exciting opportunity for health workers in both the UK and LMICs to engage in capacity development projects related to Covid-19 response, or to support the delivery of quality essential services. THET is therefore looking forward to support existing Health Partnerships, previously funded by THET, to deliver virtual volunteering support for training and capacity development in Ethiopia, Myanmar, Somaliland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

Virtual Volunteer bursaries are designed for Health Partnerships with a history of implementing capacity development projects in Ethiopia, Myanmar, Somaliland, Tanzania and Uganda, that have identified a specific area for capacity development in a health delivery institution which could be supplemented through remote volunteers working for the NHS in England. Partnerships have the opportunity to bid for volunteer bursaries of up to £10,000 for volunteering placements of three to five months.
