2014 Partnerships for Global Health

2014 Partnerships for Global Health

CSIH hosted the 21st annual Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH) in Ottawa from Nov 2-4, 2014. As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) come to an end in 2015, we need to take the time to celebrate the successes - as well as look to the future. The 2014 CCGH program reflects this changing landscape and the essential need for partnerships. The theme “Partnerships for Global Health” allowed participants to examine the MDGs and global health through the lens of partnership. This theme looked at various perspectives of partnerships with a focus on research, community engagement, and governance. The presenters shared diverging views on partnerships, that challenged us to think about our role in global health and how we engage with our partners in Canada and across the globe.
