Terms of Reference for the THET Ghana Consultant: Project Co-ordinator

Who we are

One billion people will never see a qualified health worker in their lives. For over thirty years, THET – www.thet.org – has been working to change this, training health workers to build a world where everyone has access to affordable and quality healthcare. We do this by leveraging the expertise and energy of the UK health community, supporting health partnerships between hospitals, colleges and clinics in the UK and those overseas.

Introduction to the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship

The THET Ghana Co-ordinator will carry out activities in Ghana for one of these grants programmes, the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship (CwPAMS). Funded by the UK Department for Health and Social Care’s Fleming Fund and managed by THET and the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association (CPA), CwPAMS funds 12 health partnerships to tackle the growing challenge of antimicrobial resistance in Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Further information can be found here: https://www.thet.org/our-work/grants/cwpams/.

These projects focus on strengthening the capacity of health workers in antimicrobial stewardship within individual health institutions. There are five partnerships in Ghana, with projects running from February 2019 to April 2020. All activities feed into implementing the government’s AMR National Action Plan. In addition to receiving support from THET London and CPA (also based in the UK), partnerships are also benefitting from in-country support, which will be the role of the Ghana consultant. This document serves as a terms of reference for a consultant based in Ghana who will be expected to work one day a week on the programme to support the five partnerships.
