Study identifies five areas of global health on which Canada can focus

A "year-long assessment done by the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences concluded there is a strong rationale for Canada to play a more strategic role in global health, while recognizing the scale of humanitarian needs," and to "focu[s] on five areas where its research is strongest, including indigenous health," the Globe and Mail reports. "The report, released at the Global Health conference in Montreal on Sunday, identified five areas where Canada could have significant impact on global health, including public health programs, community-based primary health care, partnerships with developing countries in research/education and global health innovation," the newspaper writes (Priest, 11/13).
