L'épidémie d'obésité: un échec de la médecine?

Fri, 2014-12-05 14:14

Depuis 30 ans, les approches médicales et diététiques ont montré leurs limites.

... "Derrière chaque obèse, il y a un individu, et cet individu ne peut être dissocié de l'écosystème dans leque il se trouve.", ajoute Laurette Dubé, professeure à la faculté de Management Desautels et présidente et présidente fondatrice et directrice scientifique du Centre de la convergence en santé et économie de l'Université McGill.

Farm to Family (and, Hopefully, Health and Wealth)

Fri, 2014-05-16 12:45

When you think about efforts to improve global health, your mind is likely to turn to medical interventions: vaccines, health worker training, supplies, health infrastructure improvements and the like. But ensuring the health and well-being for low-income and vulnerable communities throughout the world often requires much more.

MCCHE Roadmaps

The MCCHE has developed four guiding roadmaps under which to conduct our work:

Convergent Innovation Coalition

Recognizing that global nutrition and health related issues stem from a complex array of agricultural, economic and social factors, the McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) with partners INCLEN Trust International and CGIAR – CRP4 spearheaded an initiative, Convergent Innovation Coalition (CIC), which it plans to launch in the fall of 2014.

Pillars of Research

The Whole-of-Society (WoS) Model of Health and Economic Convergence

This research examines the causes and solutions at the nexus of health, disease, and their many dynamic and interdependent agro-ecological, social, industrial, and economic determinants. These factors operate on multiple scales, including households, neighborhoods, province/state, country and international.
