Calls to Action

CAGH and its members engage with key policy actors and the public to raise awareness about our country’s leading role in global health research, policy, and practice. Our goal is to promote strategic, equity-centered, and evidence-informed investments in global health.

 

We are writing to urge the Canadian government to support the WTO proposal from South Africa and India, co-sponsored by Kenya, Eswatini, Mozambique and Pakistan, for a “Waiver from certain provisions of the TRIPS Agreement for the prevention, containment and treatment of COVID-19.”
