Postponement of the CanWaCH Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange 

Along with our members and partners, the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) continues to be very concerned by and is closely monitoring the public health implications associated with COVID-19. After careful consideration of all factors, including yesterday’s confirmation by the World Health Organization that the virus is a pandemic, CanWaCH has decided to postpone the Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange that was scheduled to take place in Ottawa, Canada on April 28-29, 2020.

Join us for a one-of-a-kind event to advance and showcase Canada’s innovative leadership in global health and gender equality.

The Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange, brought to you by the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) in partnership with Plan International Canada, World Vision Canada, and Global Affairs Canada, is a dynamic, fast-paced, multi-faceted exposition that will showcase the work of and strengthen connections between CanWaCH members and other domestic and international partners working to advance Canadian leadership in global health and development. 

Participants at the Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange will Learn, Share and Explore as they experience first-hand, in an engaging and unique way, the shared solutions, tools and practical, applied learnings that have and will enable the global health community to advance progress in their program and projects. 

With complimentary entry to the Expo, visitors will have full access over two days to approximately 25 exhibits and an engaging program across three Expo stages located throughout the scenic 50 Sussex event centre, home of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
