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