Priority #1: Support our Students and Young Professionals Network

We are mentoring the next generation of global health leaders. In 2016 we doubled the number of CCGHR student chapters in Canadian universities, directly involving 50+ youth leaders across our 10 dynamic chapters. In February 2017, students at Brock University, McMaster University, the University of Waterloo and the University of Calgary partnered to host their own Global Health Forum in St. Catharines. The one-day conference offered thought-provoking sessions and panels as well as original activities such as an emergency simulation and a pitch competition.

Our donors help us build the skills and connections of next-generation global health leaders.

Priority #2: Strengthen regional networks

This past year also witnessed the launch of regional workshops with the first Ontario Coalition Institute held in Waterloo in September 2016 and planning underway to hold similar events across the country by 2018. These workshops will address key issues in global health research with a transdisciplinary approach and bring together global health champions from your region.

Our donors contribute to bringing new regional forums to life across Canada.

Priority #3: Scale up policy engagement

We continue be a steadfast advocate for global health research, engaging in high-level policy dialogue to shape an evidence-based Canadian strategy. Our expertise informs decision-making at Global Affairs Canada, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), among others. Very recently the latter integrated the CCGHR’s principles for equitable and ethical global health research into their training module for peer reviewers, a meaningful jump forward for all Canadian researchers involved in this growing field!

Our donors and members lend us weight as we make the case for equity-oriented global health priorities.
