The Centre for Global Health is the knowledge hub of global health educational activities at DLSPH and views global health in an integrative manner.  The Centre for Global Health offers multidisciplinary graduate education in global health, student practicum placements, seminars, lectures, and other training and career opportunities. It partners with research institutions around the world, to host visiting scholars (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and other researchers) and support student and faculty research at the DLSPH.  The Centre for Global Health brings together a community of students, faculty, and other partners to advance better health and equity, globally.

Located in one of the most diverse cities in the world, we look to leverage our location and Canadian values of equity, universal healthcare and social protection to make an impact on the Sustainable Development Goals. Universal health coverage will be one of the major topics throughout the year, however, other topics related to the SDGs will also be highlighted as our Centre grows.
