Global Health Policy applying evidence
Canadians are frequently invited to work with international partners to tackle complex global health challenges and improve health for all. With new responsive funding mechanisms and strategic networks, public health can make even greater contributions in addressing global health emergencies and developing evidence-informed health policies that achieve global impact.
IPPH’s Global Health Policy Initiative evolved from a strong desire to help institutionalize the use of research evidence in policymaking. In a globalized world where disease can spread quickly, evidence-informed policies are essential to address transnational health threats. To ensure this evidence is developed, IPPH is working to provide Canadian researchers with opportunities to contribute to research on emerging health threats and to mobilize interdisciplinary networks of researchers to prepare and respond to global health emergencies.
