25 Years of the Tropical Health and Education Trust

An article in the most recent issue of the Lancet ( vol 384 : 2011-2 : 6 Dec 2014 ) celebrates 25 years of the Tropical Health and Education Trust.

Talha Khan Burki looks back at the 25 year history of the Tropical Health and Education Trust which works to build partnerships in global health between the UK and resource-poor countries.

Eldryd Parry, THET’s founder, on being asked what he would do if starting THET today, replied ” I would keep to exactly the same philosophy: where are you going ? How can we help you get there ? But I would get different answers to the ones I had 25 years ago “.
