Narratives in Global Health

30 October 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The McMaster Global Health MSc Program and Mac Med Global Health Committee are proud to present the McMaster Global Health Conference 2021: “Narratives in Global Health” taking place on October 30th, 2021!

This theme reflects the idea that we have collective and individual experiences within global health and that global health issues faced by individuals have a shared impact on everyone regardless of national borders. The conference seeks to highlight unique individual stories and share new perspectives. We hope to engage attendees to explore and critically think about ways we can acknowledge our duties and responsibilities as global citizens. Throughout the conference, we will explore the interplay of various Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 3, 10, 13, and 16 – good health and well-being, reduced inequalities, climate action, and peace, justice, and strong institutions.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Caesar Atuire, a philosopher and bioethicist with the University of Ghana. He a founding member of the Ghana Research Ethics Consortium and a member of the Planning Committee of the Global Forum on Bioethics in Research, 2020. Dr. Atuire’s philosophical research interests are the intricate implications of multiculturalism and technological innovation, particularly in Africa.

Global Health Conference 2021 will be an amalgamation of speaker presentations, workshops, and research from McMaster students.
