Health Education and Training (HEAT)
Partnerships and collaborations are vital to HEAT. We work closely with and within Governments (such as the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH)) and have worked alongside partners on almost every aspect of the programme - from collaborating with African health experts and academics in the creation of the HEAT theoretical training materials through to working with global NGOs in the planning and delivery of the practical training.
HEAT’s key partners are listed below. We’re also talking with experts in the fields of mobile technology, and other cadres of healthcare, to make sure that HEAT reaches its full potential.
