Canadian Conference on Global Health

“Leaving no one behind? Reflections for action in a changing world”

October 29 – 31, 2017
Ottawa, Canada
Canadian Society for International Health

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.

Specific themes to be examined include: Tackling poverty and social exclusion; Health of marginalized populations during and following periods of crises; Sustainable and equitable environmental action and Research; and Innovation and Measurement for equitable action.
