The Canadian Association for Global Health (CAGH) is delighted to announce that the 28th Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH 2022) will be held from November 21-23 2022. This year’s conference will be taking place at the Hilton Toronto in downtown Toronto. CCGH 2022 will be presented in a hybrid format and offer both in-person and virtual access.
Call for Abstracts
The CCGH invites abstracts for oral presentations, posters, workshops, symposia, and videos to be presented in a hybrid program! Submissions may address any global health topic, but must relate to the conference theme and at least one of the sub-themes below.
Theme: Towards Inclusive Global Health: Research & 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, 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.
CCGH 2022 will provide a platform to revisit and re-envision policies, strategies, and practices with the aim of identifying barriers and bottlenecks that may hinder the attainment of inclusive global health and Universal Health Coverage goals.
We invite workshops and presentations that delve into our theme of how we achieve Inclusive Global Health. Abstracts will tackle questions and approaches for further understanding of inclusion, equity, and decolonization, with particular attention paid to the unpredictability of our times and the necessary collective responses.
The conference program will be built around the following sub-themes:
- Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Justice
- Local and International Inequities
- Indigenous Health
- Local Implementation as Key to Inclusivity
- Global Health in Times of Crisis
The following cross-cutting themes are considered to be important factors in achieving inclusive global health and will be reflected throughout the conference:
- Gender & equity
- Anti-colonial approaches, strategies, and processes
- Evidence-informed practices
- Achieving results
- The role of authentic partnerships in achieving inclusive global health
We look forward to seeing you in person or virtually in November!
