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.
On January 1, 2016, the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into effect to end extreme poverty while combatting health, social and economic injustices - with an overarching goal to leave no one behind. With this global context in mind, the 23rd Canadian Conference on Global Health will provide a forum for reflecting on the first 1000 days of global action and implementation of the SDGs as they impact on the health and well-being of nations around the world.

At the end of the conference, participants will:
- Become more aware of the diverse research methods, theories, measures and strategies that can be applied to systematically address the subthemes: Tackling poverty and social exclusion; Health of marginalized populations; Sustainable and equitable environmental action and Research; Innovation and Measurement for equitable action.
- Better understand the critical success factors that contribute to equitable, sustainable and innovative global action to deliver on the SDGs
- Better develop strategies that acknowledge and tackle the power relations between actors within and across countries to ensure no one is left behind
- Be inspired to take concerted action through their respective organizations and networks.
