Global Health

Global Health can be regarded as population health on a trans-national scale. It focuses on the determinants and distribution of health and disease in human populations that affect more than one country. Both inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches are used with the ultimate goal of achieving equity in health across international boundaries. Much of the research focus in global health has recently been redirected to reflect the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 with the ultimate goal of reducing poverty and improving access to healthcare services for marginalized populations around the world.

The Global Health SR was established in 2005 with the aim of promoting competitive Quebec-led research in the domain, to maximize existing and emerging research potential, and to provide opportunities for networking.

Objectives of the Grouping

  • Increase interdisciplinary, interinstitutional and intersectoral research in global population health and its social determinants.
  • Support structuring initiatives in global health by fostering interdisciplinary, interinstitutional and intersectoral linkages.
  • Facilitate the exchange and utilization of knowledge stemming from global health research.
