Health Partnerships Webinar Series

The ESTHER Alliance for Global Health Partnerships is happy to launch a new webinar series that focuses on the learning drawn from the Institutional Health Partnership model. Every webinar, we will host speakers from diverse geographical and professional backgrounds to exchange expertise and knowledge on health partnerships’ evidence and case studies. The series targets individuals, healthcare professionals and organisations that work and are interested in health partnerships.

The first webinar of the series will be held on 30 April 2021, and the subsequent events will take place on the last Friday of every second month at 1:00 pm UK/ Irish time. Except for the December’s webinar, which will take place on the third Friday of the month. 

New Website Launch - WHO COVID-19: Health Services Learning Hub

The WHO COVID-19: Health Services Learning Hub (HLH) is a dynamic new platform that uses innovative approaches to collate, document and synthesise emerging areas of learning on the maintenance of essential health services to support countries during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, including the recovery and post-pandemic phase.

The HLH launched on April 1st 2021

New Online Community Platform: Pulse!

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Pulse platform in partnership with THET.

The Pulse community aims to create an online space for health partnerships to connect, create and collaborate with one another. Enabling the sharing of learning, project development and furthering a sense of community amongst Health Partnerships and volunteers. Pulse helps to create a world where health workers are empowered to grow and lead health systems strengthening worldwide.

Our community supports, protects, motivates and equips the global health workforce to deliver quality health care. 


We are an alliance of governments and allied organizations. Our members engage institutions in effective and sustainable North-South partnerships. Our partnerships strengthen the capacity of the health workforce and institutions to provide quality health services for people in low and middle-income countries. We promote institutional health partnerships through knowledge generation, sharing best practice, collaboration, and advocacy.


The ESTHER Alliance is set in the general framework of the Sustainable Development Goals. We contribute mostly to SDG 3 Good Health and Wellbeing and SDF 17 Partnerships for the Goals. Those two goals taken together highlight not only what we want to achieve (better health for all, or Universal Health Coverage), but also how we want to achieve it (through better, more equal, and balanced partnerships.


This is a new tool for institutional health partnerships, EFFECt stands for EFFective in Embedding Change.  The tool specifically focusses on assessing implementation best practice, embedding change and the added benefits to individuals and institutions of using a partnership approach.  The EFFECt tool measures these in relation to capacity building activities irrespective of the focus of the specific intervention.
