Governance for Global Health: Power, politics and justice

Delta Hotel, Ottawa, Canada

Thursday, October 17, 2019 to Saturday, October 19, 2019

The 25th Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH) will examine the theme of governance for global health, acknowledging the importance of accountability and the influence of power and politics on health. Investments and public policies that seek to improve health, and the determinants of health, benefit all and help societies thrive.

Join us for CCGH 2019!

The 2019 Canadian Conference for Global Health warmly welcomes researchers, policy makers, practitioners, students and stakeholders from all sectors for meaningful, evidence-based, and informed knowledge exchange to move forward collectively.

Members of the global health community will learn from each other through lessons, policies, and practices that reflect how the health of populations have been influenced by good governance and/or strengthened accountability, and how such findings impact all people and seek to leave no one behind.
