Description and results


This project provides support to the 2019 Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH). Organized annually by the Canadian Society for International Health, the conference highlights global health research and projects undertaken by Canadians and their international partners. The conference attracts researchers, policy-makers, civil society representatives and students from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and interests. The CCGH provides a unique and important opportunity for participants to network and share innovative approaches, noteworthy results, and lessons learned. The conference’s annual themes and sub-themes reflect global health priorities and Canadian international assistance objectives. CCGH’s 2019 theme is “Governance for Global Health: Power, Politics and Justice,” with gender, equity, evidence, and sustainability as cross-cutting themes. In 2019, over 500 people are expected to directly benefit from the Conference, which will take place October 17 to 19 in Ottawa.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased engagement, collaboration and knowledge transfer in global health for conference participants; and (2) increased awareness of equity, including gender equity, in the field of global health.
