About the Blog


 This blog is an outreach initiative by McGill Global Health Programs  to harness a blog’s ability to engage with communities and share updates in an interactive manner.

Our mission is to:

  • spotlight the McGill community’s interdisciplinary efforts in global health research, advocacy and other initiatives.

  • connect our program with external individuals and organizations interested in global health and development, facilitating the creation of a virtual supportive network of university-based global health initiatives.

  • share educational resources relevant to current global health news.

  • facilitate and encourage discourse between the McGill Global Health Programs, the extended McGill community, and anyone else interested in our work.

We hope that after reviewing our posts, you are inspired to connect with us through our blog, and to become further involved in global health.
