Every year, more than 600 people from more than 30 countries gather in Canada for the Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH). Practitioners, researchers, educators, students, policy makers and community mobilizers come to share their knowledge and experience and find new ways to work together.
The 2018 edition of the Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH) will examine the theme of Fragile Environments and Global Health. This topic has received increased attention amongst the global health community as we struggle to understand drivers, experiences and practices. Recognized knowledge gaps include, but are not limited to, a lack of empirical evidence, a dearth of credible population data, weak linkages between health and other sectors, insufficient collaboration between humanitarian and development efforts, and an absence of equitable programs and policies, particularly for vulnerable populations such as women and children, adolescents, and older persons. CCGH 2018 seeks to highlight and examine the drivers of change that may address these gaps as we strive to identify positive and transformative change that disrupt the status quo solutions.
CCGH 2018 warmly welcomes researchers, policy makers, students, practitioners and stakeholders from health, humanitarian and other sectors to share their wisdom on how the global health community can drive change in fragile environments. Join us in Toronto, November 19-21, 2018 and share your views, experiences, and ideas for moving forward.
CanWaCH is the official partner of the 2018 Canadian Conference on Global Health and our AGM will take place during the conference (more details on our 2018 AGM to follow).
The call for abstracts is expected to be released by the end of March 2018.
