The 5th ESTHER Ireland Partnerships Forum

The 5th ESTHER Ireland Partnerships Forum took place on November 11, 2020.  As part of a live web event, the winners of the UNSUNG HERO 2020 Award were announced at the event.


The two-hour online event “A Bright Future for Health Partnerships”  brought together a small group of committed individuals who work within health links.  The event was held in two sessions – the first, we heard from international speakers on how the landscape of health partnerships continues to shift and the second showcased a number of new links and new ideas.   

The last six months have been a time of great challenge, and also a time of great innovation, as health partnerships/links find unique and creative ways to continue and even expand their work together.  

The Partnerships Forum is an annual collaborative networking and learning event which showcases international health partnerships between health organisations in Ireland and various partners in the Global South.

As with previous years, the presentations are split into several ‘Sessions’ over the course of the day. Recordings of each of the presentations will be made available via playlist on the IGHN Youtube channel.
