Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET ) Fund

Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET ) is committed to improving health services in developing countries through strengthening long-term capacity. 


Based in the UK, we have over twenty years experience working with health institutions around the world, promoting action that is practical, sustainable and responsive.

Our mission is to help improve the basic health services of the poorest countries, building long-term capacity.

THET believes in the values of solidarity of justice between people across all territorial and social boundaries. We are driven by a belief that everyone, irrespective of wealth or background, should have adequate healthcare. Working in partnership with health institutions in developing countries, our ultimate aim is to help people to live longer and healthier lives enabling them to take part in their local economy and society.

THET has developed a new grant scheme to support Links improve global health outcomes for people living in poverty through more coordinated link activities. Four grants of £20 000 are available to long-term health partnerships, or ‘Health Links’, between UK health institutions and their counterparts in developing countries.

To apply, the Links must meet institutional and country eligibility criteria. In addition to meeting these criteria, the project proposal must also:
  • Involve more than one institutional Link
  • Focus on a single, coherent and time-bound project
  • Focus on improving health outcomes for people living in poverty
  • Strengthen ties between Links working in similar geographical or clinical areas
