Developing Skilled Future Leaders in Strengthening Health and Social Systems

This project will enable emerging leaders within McMaster University’s undergraduate community to build knowledge and skills to support health- and social-system strengthening internationally. We will leverage McMaster Health Forum’s programs to support skills development in policy, political and systems analysis, evidence synthesis, and stakeholder engagement, while building on our experience with student mentorship, leadership development and facilitating international exchange. We will also leverage our extensive network of international partners (e.g., 57 global members of the COVID-19 Evidence Network to support Decision-making (COVID-END) and those involved in the Global Commission on Evidence to Address Societal Challenges) to support meaningful international experiences.
