Theme: Towards Inclusive Global Health: Research and Practice Priorities in Uncertain Times

The uncertainty of conflict, climate change, economic and/or financial crises and pandemics, continues to call for attention and resources that will redress the inequities that exist along the continuum from local to global, within and between countries.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has upended life for people everywhere and has highlighted the dramatic uncertainty of our times. Pandemic experiences have exacerbated the negative and differential impacts of already unpredictable environmental, political, social, and funding landscapes. Health inequities and exclusion remain deeply entrenched in our systems. With growing calls to decolonize global health and attention paid to equity, diversity and inclusion, global health researchers and practitioners must channel attention towards inclusive rebuilding. How do we achieve meaningful inclusion in our research and practice in ways that will advance global health while creating and promoting opportunities for authentic partnerships and diverse leadership? How is inclusion considered and reflected while building stronger, decolonized spaces?

The uncertainties that emerge from climate change, poverty and growing inequalities and health emergencies have pervasive impacts on communities and people who are already marginalized and disadvantaged. The impacts of such uncertainties reverberate across societies and are experienced in all countries around the world.

The 28th Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH 2022) will be held from November 21-23 2022 at the Hilton Toronto in downtown Toronto, and will provide a platform to revisit and re-envision policies, strategies, and practices with the aim of identifying barriers and bottlenecks that may hinder attainment of inclusive global health and Universal Health Coverage goals. The CCGH will be presented in a hybrid format and offer both in-person and virtual access.
