Presenting At a Glance: Using the Project Explorer for funding opportunities

Navigating multiple sources and websites to find information on projects, funding and local partners can be difficult and time consuming. The Project Explorer provides an easily searchable platform to find the most critical and up to date data on global health and gender equality projects across Canada and the world. 

In this edition of the At a Glance series, see how you can use the Project Explorer’s tools to identify gaps and opportunities as you develop and tailor funding strategies. Learning from others and connecting to a large community of like minded organizations has never been easier!

Digital storytelling as a tool in global health

CanWaCH supported Canadian Collaborative for Global Health Project, Digital Storytelling for Global Health Research and Action, held a webinar on Digital storytelling (DST) as a tool in Global Health. The webinar considered how a participatory visual media creation methodology can be a powerful tool to collect qualitative data and apply decolonial approaches. This approach was also presented in a live symposium at the 28th Canadian Conference on Global Health.
