Five Years On – Reflections from the Born on Time Program

Born on Time was the first Canadian public-private partnership dedicated to the prevention of preterm birth, now the leading cause of death in children under five globally.

Three Game-Changers for an Equitable Global Response to COVID-19

An equitable global response requires a fully funded ACT Accelerator, the temporary removal of intellectual property barriers to producing COVID-19 tools and the urgent redistribution of vaccines from high-income countries with surplus doses. The pandemic will not end anywhere until it ends everywhere. Check out our new resource hub on vaccine equity to learn about the key areas that Canadian organizations are focused on to help end the COVID-19 pandemic.

Data Matters

Bridging Data Gaps Through the CanWaCH Project Explorer

With less than 10 years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are faced with sustained and varying challenges. Access to reliable, accurate and timely data must be a priority. At CanWaCH, we look to harness the power of mutual partnerships to tackle these challenges in order to improve results, facilitate shared learning and measure the sector’s collective impact. Check out Carleton University’s feature of the CanWaCH Project Explorer in its online platform PANL Perspectives.
