About this Member 

The Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH)’s perceptions of health can no longer be confined to the boundaries of the individual, the community or the nation. Health and well-being is increasingly related to emerging global trends, often resulting in health inequities worldwide. This phenomenon presents many challenges to the wide range of actors and institutions working to improve global health.

The CISH is a national non-governmental organization that works domestically and internationally to reduce global health inequities and strengthen health systems. Founded in 1977, CSIH attempts to realize its goals through the dedication of its membership and staff. CSIH is governed by a Board of Directors.

CSIH members share a common interest and commitment to global health, global health research, and international development. Its members include individuals and organizations representing a broad spectrum of experience in various disciplines. Members contribute considerable time and energy to CSIH’s many activities, programs and projects, and connect CSIH to other organizations in Canada and abroad. Through the engagement of its members and partners, CSIH endeavors to bring together various communities engaged in global health in order to promote a collective agenda.
