Canada is leading the way in championing the health rights and needs of the world’s most marginalized people through a unique partnership of Canadian organizations and individuals.
Last month, Canada secured its legacy as a global leader in advancing the health and rights of women, adolescents and children around the world when Prime Minister Trudeau announced the Thrive Agenda, a ten-year, $1.4 billion annual investment.
Here are the top 10 areas of focus for global health projects around the world:
Infectious & Communicable Diseases
Food Security & Nutrition
Sexual Health & Rights
Reproductive Health and Rights including Maternal Health
Primary Health Care
Health Systems, Training & Infrastructure
Law, Governance & Public Policy
WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
Health Promotion & Education
While we have achieved a lot, there is still work to be done so that all women and children – no matter where they live – can access quality healthcare and thrive in communities around the world and here at home. The time is now to let your friends and family know you’re proud of Canada’s leadership in supporting the health rights of women and children by sharing the Lead On Canada campaign.
