Event Description:

An International Conference Presented by the Gairdner Foundation and the University of Manitoba
Canada and Global Public Health:  MOVING FROM STRATEGY TO ACTION
June 12-13th, 2018

Canada’s commitment to global public health policy reform, program implementation and ongoing  preparedness has been heralded by public and political dignitaries from around the world. 

Canada’s success in hosting the 2016 replenishment conference for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and increased pledge to the fund demonstrated Canada’s commitment to contribute to global public health.  However, there remain many critical unmet needs, particularly with respect to translating promising strategies and interventions into better health outcomes and improved equity.

The Canada and Global Public Health: Moving from Strategy to Action conference, hosted by the University of Manitoba, will be a forum for identifying promising strategies through which Canada can contribute to addressing these needs. Key topics for the conference include:

* Identifying key challenges in global public health and emerging strategies and opportunities for addressing them;
* Reviewing areas of Canadian excellence for improving global public health; and
* Developing concrete strategies for mobilizing and coordinating Canada’s efforts in global public health to enhance their impact.
* The conference will bring together leaders in global public health from across Canada and internationally to present and discuss key issues in global public health and identify ways in which Canada take can move from strategy to action.

The conference will focus on four main themes:
A. Current challenges and opportunities in global public health
B. Canada’s role and contributions in global public health
C. Canada’s future role in global health
D. Moving from strategy to action
