Strategic Priorities

We work to strengthen the global health community at BC Children's and Women's Hospital and beyond.

Our 2020-2024 Strategic Plan can be viewed here. A full list of our Working Groups can be found here.


CICH aims to build capacity through collaborative and sustained partnerships. Our multidisciplinary partnerships with hospitals and universities in low-and-and middle income countries (e.g., Uganda, Malawi, Botswana, Rwanda, Guinea-Bissau, India, Laos) have been built over many years of dedicated collaboration, and together we are committed to improving the health of children and women worldwide. We also work with our partners at organizations such as the Global Burden of Disease (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation), World Health Organization, and World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies to advocate locally, nationally, and internationally for improved health for children and women.

CICH aims to expand global health education opportunities for residents and fellows at BC Children's and Women's Hospital, and contribute to health workforce education at partnering institutions by providing bilateral exchange and reciprocal learning opportunities. We provide meaningful, thoughtful, and robust global health opportunities for healthcare professionals to attract talented and passionate people and help position the hospital as a leader in global health. We nurture, train, and enrich our trainees and staff to become future leaders that can tackle health challenges from an integrated approach.
