RESULTS Canada is hosting a round table discussion at the University of British Columbia on September 29, 2017. If you or those in your network are involved in the Canadian global health R&D sector please consider attending and/or share this across your own network.

We need to hear directly from you on the opportunities, gaps and best practices in your experience concerning global health R&D, particularly for diseases of poverty. According to a recent funding report that maps out Canada’s spending into neglected R&D for diseases of poverty, funding is low, inconsistent, and lacks diversity. Launching from this research, we would like to investigate in greater detail the challenges and opportunities facing the global health R&D community in Canada. We will use this to help inform a set of policy recommendations to move Canada’s R&D funding for global health and diseases of poverty forward. Now is a key time to voice the needs of the research community if we want to see the full potential of the Canadian global health community realized.




RESULTS Canada is a global advocacy organization that works to create the political will to end poverty through focused advocacy in global nutrition, child health, education and tuberculosis. We work with a variety of stakeholders to advance these causes, including elected officials, NGOs, multilateral organizations, federal officials, and members of the Canadian public.
