This project supports the 2014 and 2015 Canadian Conferences for Global Health (CCGH) which draws over 600 participants annually. The objectives of the 2014 CCGH conference is to gather Canadian and international global health stakeholders to encourage new partnerships, and support existing partnerships to improve global health. In conjunction with the Can-MNCH Network, the conference discusses progress and challenges to improving maternal and child health in post 2015 and improving accountability and transparency for women and children’s health. The 2015 conference, in collaboration with the Can-MNCH Network and the Global Health Research Capacity Strengthening Program, builds on outcomes of the 2014 conference and will focus on promoting North-South collaboration in global health research for improved efforts to advance the new post 2015 framework. The CCGH is organized annually by the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH), a non-profit, non-governmental organization that works domestically and internationally to reduce global health inequities and to strengthen health systems. The CCGH is a major Canadian conference dedicated to global health and promotes cooperation, and creates spaces for researchers, NGOs, health care providers and government representatives to analyze and disseminate lessons learned and best practices. The conference highlights Canada’s role in global health, both in Canada and abroad through its extensive global reach. The project supports the provision of scholarships to delegates from low and middle-income countries, and audio visual equipment for the 2014 and 2015 conferences.
