We want to hear from you!

It’s hard to believe that 8 months have gone by since BCCI2. We’re always open to hearing your thoughts and suggestions on how to improve future institutes.

In this quick 5-10 minute survey, there are four sets of questions for your thoughtful reflection and feedback. The results of the survey will be disseminated in the BCCI2 Final Report, which will be shared later this year. Click on the button below to fill out our survey.

Welcome to the British Columbia Coalition Institute (BCCI) website, a dedicated platform for an innovative and localized model of the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR).

Here you can find information and resources on the various activities that support the BCCI, using the CCGHR Principles for Global Health Research as a framework.
