Refocusing Health Research in Canada

Canadian researchers now want to focus research in Canada for the benefit of Canadians and people around the world. They want to improve the health status of Canadians, but at the same time participate in international projects or partnerships for global health. The COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid development of vaccines have highlighted the need for Canada to participate in international research. Over the next five years, researchers at the Canadian Institute for Health Research will work to strengthen the harmonization of global health research and policy. (May 31, 2021)
