Institutional Health Partnerships – How They Adapted in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

ESTHER Ireland has published a synthesis document which focuses on the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic and explores how Health Partnerships adapted in response.

Health partnerships typically involve long-term institutional relationships between high-income countries (HIC) and low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Effective collaboration towards a common goal lies at the centre of institutional health partnerships (IHP). The purpose of this paper is to highlight the role of IHPs’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in maintaining essential health services in LMICs.

This paper utilised desk-based research to gather information on organisations and partnerships involved with the ESTHER Alliance for Global Health Partnerships. The information was then analysed and synthesised to produce the results.

This paper was written by ESTHER interns Maisie Jones, Elizabeth Powderly, Gayathri Mayadunne, and ESTHER Ireland Coordinator Hala Ali.
