ECHAlliance gladly announces their strategic partnership with Task Force Health Care (TFHC). As both partners aim to improve healthcare by connecting the right people and ecosystems, they decided to join forces in doing so. Although both non-profit organizations have a global scope, the focus of the collaboration is to intensify joint activities within Europe.
As a first act of collaboration, ECHAlliance contributed to the platform meeting July 7th of the Public Private Platform for the Recovery of the Healthcare sector in Ukraine, coordinated by TFHC. During the meeting, Andy Bleaden, Communities Director at ECHAlliance, announced the upcoming launch of ECHAlliance Ukraine Digital Health Ecosystem A logical first collaboration as both parties aim to support Ukraine to build back better.
Our joint ecosystems will get access to an enhanced programme of thematic knowledge sessions. Themes being for example Digital Health, eHealth, Integrated CareModels and Mental Health all contributing to bringing both the public and private members of our ecosystems forward in collectively shaping the healthcare systems of the future. TFHC will in the future act as one of the ECHAlliance Dutch ecosystems, boosting the knowledge exchange within the existing ECHAlliance’s global community.
Wendy Hugoosgift Contreras, Programme Director Europe of TFHC, commented: “Through this strategic partnership, TFHC members will get additional support and engagement in EU funded innovation and development programmes. Together with our joint efforts in thought leadership activities we will create additional value to our members and further facilitate their internationalization journeys to make a positive impact on the ground.”
During TFHC’s upcoming Fact Finding mission to the UK to both Manchester and Liverpool, next October 4 – 6 October 2023 with a group of 14 Dutch delegates, ECHAlliance will be joining the Health Seminar in Manchester and the partnership will then be further formalized by signing an MoU. By joining forces, we aim to extend our reach and provide long-term impact contributing to our missions to improving healthcare together within our joint Health communities.
Andy Bleaden, Communities Director at ECHAlliance, said: “We are very excited about the possibility of collaborating with our members in the Netherlands- TFHC as they already have proven connections across not only Europe but globally as well. As the Global Health Connector – ECHAlliance looks to connect the dots where we can and this is a great opportunity whether it be in Ukraine or the UK.”
