Canada's ability to respond

1:30 - 5:30 pm Sunday October, 21st

Given the economic realities of today and its impacts on our shifting global markets, perhaps now more than ever, we need to work together, share what we know, and collaborate.

As part of a new initiative, the Canadian Conference on Global Health will be presenting a special session, Canada's ability to respond, on Sunday, October 21st

Canada's ability to respond will engage presenters and participants to examine and discuss Canada's capacity, in partnership with the global South, to respond to global health development and research needs worldwide.

The information gathered at the session will lead to a virtual, web-based database outlining who is doing what, where globally. We are interested in identifying and mapping work being conducted in the global health field by all sectors, including universities and colleges, all levels of government, non-governmental organizations, and private agencies.

We hope this initiative will give Conference attendees a greater awareness and recognition of the extent of expertise Canada holds in the field of global health. This will also equip newer researchers and practitioners in global health with a valuable network tool from which to facilitate future work opportunities.
