About us

Our work in Ethiopia began in the early 1990s as a result of requests from the Deans of the Jimma and Gondar Medical Schools to THET’s founder Professor Sir Eldryd Parry for development of the skills of their young specialist and trainee doctors.

Since then, a strong partnership has formed between these medical schools, THET, and other institutions and organisations to improve the life of NCD patients in Ethiopia.

The THET Ethiopia NCD Alliance was created in 2016 in recognition that we are a diverse group of organisations and institutions working together to achieve the same mission and vision.
