McGill has several partnerships in low and middle-income countries (Figure 1). In particular, our researchers have strong links with institutions in India, South America, Haiti, China and Africa.
These communities essentially train students in our professional and interdisciplinary research degree programs. As a result of knowledge translation, communities experience change and growth with practitioners, public health scientists, students and citizens who come together to solve real life problems. Partner communities could include recent immigrant and refugee populations, First Nation’s communities, ethnic minorities, low-income neighbourhoods, or specific communities in low and middle-income countries.
The School is a hub of public global health expertise for the rest of the University, communities, NGOs as well as other institutions and industries. The numerous experts in the School are ready to partner for consultations, evaluations, research, or other support and services. More details can be found on the individual websites of the collaborating members.
