McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE)
Formerly known as the McGill World Platform for Health and Economic Convergence (MWP), the MCCHE is a world leader in promoting the development of a novel, integrative approach to the study of global nutrition and health challenges. These challenges include the persistent problem of hunger and under-nutrition and the growing worldwide epidemic of obesity.
Through a “Brain to Society”(BtS)/“Whole of Society” (WoS) approach, the MCCHE stimulates new collaborations that bridge the many divides in the market, economy, and society that are at the root of our most pressing modern health and economic problems. Through these collaborations, the MCCHE drives innovation and policy development in science, technology, business, agriculture, and health systems and generates focused and outcome-based projects, creating better health for everyone.
The ultimate objective of the MCCHE is to generate health-promoting social and business changes. To do so, the MCCHE:
Collaborates on research and education programs and knowledge-to-action activities.
Transforms individual and community diets, lifestyles, markets, and health systems.
Trains all levels of graduate students.
