Welcome to FHS Global Health
The Faculty of Health Sciences, SFU is actively engaged in a wide range of global health teaching and research. Global health begins with recognition of the greater interconnectedness of health determinants and outcomes in an increasingly globalized world. This has fuelled interdisciplinary interest within FHS of health needs and responses in countries beyond our own Canadian context; changes to patterns of health and disease worldwide; broad determinants of health that are not confined within national borders and territorial spaces; populations who are vulnerable to changes in health risks; and the governance responses needed to achieve effective collection health action.
FHS Global Health contributes to the training of public health professionals, researchers and practitioners through taught courses and thesis supervision seeking to work within global health settings. In addition, research conducted within FHS generates new understandings of the global health challenges faced and the potential interventions for addressing them.
