Who we are
The Global Health Program Committee’s purpose is to promote global health in the context of family practice and to support and encourage the international health activities of members in the domain of clinical care, research, and education in family medicine. The Committee’s responsibilities include increasing an awareness of the role of family medicine in the global health arena, establishing and fostering international links to support and promote the growth of family medicine, and acting as a resource to the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) in building on existing relationships with international organizations.
