Global Health Conference 2022

March 31, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

On behalf of the Centre for International and Child Health at BC Children’s and Women’s Hospital and the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia, we invite you attend the 4th Annual Global Health Conference.

The conference will take place on 31 March 2022 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm PDT and will be a combined virtual and in-person event at the Chan Centre for Family Health Education at BC Children’s Hospital. In-person attendance will depend upon provincial health orders in British Columbia.

The theme of this year’s conference is 42 days: Reimaging the Postpartum and Postnatal Period. This often-neglected period is the inspiration for this year. We are bringing local experts into conversation with recognized leaders in the field to consider the role of health systems in promoting meaningful practices to prevent mortality and address inequities. We are planning for senior leads from Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada, SOGC, FIGO and Perinatal Services BC to attend.
