Canadian Collaborative for Global Health

CanWaCH is establishing the first Canadian Collaborative for Global Health (the ‘Collaborative’). Over the next two years, the Collaborative will bring together Canadian and global partners to generate solutions to urgent data challenges in global health and gender equality where (a) Canada has made significant contributions to date; and (b) significant gaps in data capacity, knowledge, or resources remain. This effort is rooted in a feminist approach to creating lasting change, and will enable Canada to meaningful progress towards the SDGs.

The Collaborative has three core objectives:

  • Investigate the underlying barriers to effective data progress in areas of global health and gender equality;

  • Incubate useful solutions and effective partnerships to address these challenges; and

  • Inspire and train the next generation of Canadian leadership in global health and gender equality metrics.

Please note that the request for proposals is now closed. Thank you to all applicants. We will be in touch shortly.

This project is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through Global Affairs Canada.
