The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) held a series of consultations in reference to its global health strategic planning exercise, in collaboration with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). These were regional events and by invitation only. After each CIHR-IDRC session, one-page briefing notes were prepared for CCGHR members. CIHR agreed to receive a Coalition “external” consultation document reflecting the views of researchers across Canada.
On April 9, BC members of CCGHR attended an in-person consultation. Following this, a webinar provided an opportunity to further reflect views from across BC, specifically those of the BCCI Community of Practice and its key component, Students and Young Professionals (SYPs). All proceedings were integrated into a summary report submitted to CIHR-IDRC in May.
Building on the CCGHR-led external consultations that have taken place across the country, we examined Canadian strengths and areas for opportunity in global health research. We looked to deepen the conversation and explore avenues for concrete action through the BCCI Community of Practice. Across these themes, we also looked to consider the health impacts of climate change.
