Launch of CIHR’s Framework for Action on Global Health Research, 2021-2026

Canadian Institutes of Health Research are pleased to invite you to the launch of Global Health 3.0: CIHR’s Framework for Action on Global Health Research, 2021-2026.

This Framework was developed through an extensive consultation process that engaged over 400 researchers and stakeholders to better understand Canada's challenges and opportunities in global health research.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscores the importance of working globally to overcome health problems that transcend borders. CIHR’s Framework for Action on Global Health Research recognizes that globally shared risks require global collective action and collaboration to accelerate health equity for all.
The Framework seeks to leverage Canadian research excellence to achieve big impact, foster alignment, and strengthen capacity in global health research. Over the next five years, CIHR will focus its global health research activities in three key areas:

- prevention of non-communicable diseases;
- s*x, gender and health; and
- health emergencies.

The event will be presented in English with simultaneous interpretation in French.

Date: Monday, May 31, 2021, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (EST)

About the workshop:
How can we support organizations to embed evaluative practices within their day-to-day operations? This webinar focuses on strategies to facilitate the adoption of these practices through the principles of Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) and Evaluative Thinking (ET).

2 – Understand the ECB model
3 – Apply ET within their own practices in the community
4 – Understand the strengths and challenges of ECB and ET

Hello everyone, I am very excited to be this years president of CCGHR with Oscar Palacio as vice president! I hope everyones summer has been incredible so far. The deadline for move-in day registration is this Wednesday, AUGUST 22, 2018. We need a minimum of 4 volunteers to get a vendor table for 1 day, and a minimum of 7 volunteers to get a table for both days. I will need your FULL NAME, STUDENT #, AND TSHIRT SIZE. Our shift will be 11:45am-4pm on Sunday, SEPTEMBER 2nd. I hope that you all sign up! 😊
Fatal infections are on the rise, and I highly doubt it's flu or strep A alone (in some cases). Wolbachia infections can kill otherwise healthy, young people in the prime of their lives. The WHO endorsed the use of Wolbachia-infected Aedes (and anyone associated with the WHO and/or NIH is ignoring solid evidence that it infects vertebrates). Drs. Allison McGeer and Theresa Tam have ties to the WHO and NIH and should resign. Watch for an acute inflammatory response: high fever, headache, myalgia, enlarged lymph nodes, breathing difficulties, CNS changes, groin pain, abdominal pain, etc. Just published (with citations): http://www.infobarrel.com/Its_Willful_Negligence_to_NOT_test_for_Wolbachia_Genes_in_Blood Petition to help (with ignored intern'l studies): https://www.change.org/p/oncologists-and-pathologists-acute-inflammatory-response-gbs-uveal-melanoma-or-lymphoma-r-o-rickettsiales-wolbachia/u/22496605
