More than 660 participants from 43 countries gathered in Montreal from November 5-7, 2015 to explore the 22nd Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH) theme “Capacity-building for global health: research and practice.” CCGH provided a forum for practitioners, researchers, educators, students, policy makers and community mobilizers interested in global health to share knowledge and experience and promote innovation and collaborative action.
An exciting addition to the conference lineup in 2015 was the Training Hub. This was a space for participants to network with the expert presenters, allowing young researchers and students to further engage in their field and build their capacity in global health.
Another highlight was the participation of more than 100 delegates from 36 low and middle income countries (LMIC). CCGH sponsored 48 LMIC speakers to attend and present papers and posters as well as 3 LMIC keynote speakers.
The 2015 Conference was held in partnership with the Global Health Research Capacity Training Program (GHR-CAPS).
