Tackling the pressing challenges in global and population health with cultural humility, a determination to collaborate, and a commitment to fairness
Queen's researchers, clinicians, educators, and trainees are engaged in partnerships in Canada and across the globe, contributing towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #3 (UN SDG3) of Good Health and Well-Being and the affiliated goals of SDG4 Quality Education, SDG5 Gender Equality, and SDG17 Partnerships for the Goals. We do this through research, education, service, and collaborative projects that foster shared benefits and multi-directional learning.
At Queen’s University, we understand the need to decolonize global health. As an institution, we seek to be reflective, to listen and learn, and to participate in meaningful conversation and positive change.
