Leaving no one behind? Reflection for action in a changing world

On January 1, 2016, the United Nations’ (UN) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into effect to end extreme poverty while combatting health, social and economic injustices - with an overarching goal to leave no one behind.

With this global context in mind and building on the dialogue and outcomes from the 2016 Vancouver Statement for the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research  and other calls to action such as the UN Every Woman, Every Child Initiative, the 2017 Canadian Conference on Global Health will provide a forum for reflecting on the first 1000 days of global action and implementation of the SDGs as they impact on the health and well-being of nations around the world.

The program will include plenary sessions, oral presentations, posters, and documentary films.  

The call for abstracts will open in March, 2017.
