Academic Partners at the University of Manitoba

Global and Indigenous health is a complex topic that involves many different things. At the University of Manitoba, we are fortunate to have international leaders in research who are able to conduct research and provide guidance to try to inspire change and make the world a better place.

The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship program is a great way to start to understand how these complex procesess fit together to support and complement one another.

Through this program students will be exposed to Medical Microbiology, Aboriginal Health and Global Public Health research. The leading institutes and departments at the University who have partnered to make this program possible are listed below.

Centre for Aboriginal Health Education

The Centre for Aboriginal Health Education (CAHE) was established in 2006 to provide supports for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in dental hygiene, dentistry, medicine, medical rehabilitation, nursing and pharmacy at the University of Manitoba.

The centre operates within the Section of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Health in the Department of Community Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine. CAHE continues to develop its resources and programs in consultation with student members. CAHE is dedicated to values that foster respect and that promote the success of all members. These include values such as honesty, integrity, responsibility and respect for persons and property.


Center for Global Public Health

The Centre for Global Public Health (CGPH) at the University of Manitoba focuses on improving public health programs and systems for vulnerable and disadvantaged populations in diverse settings, through rigorous applied research and evaluation, in areas including HIV/STI prevention and care and maternal, neonatal and child health. CGPH has received more than $150 million in global health grants over the past 10 years from organizations such as the World Bank, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United States Agency for International Development and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development. CGPH is also a leader in applied public health research and currently receives nearly $1.5-million in research funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

CGPH has established strong partnerships with governmental, non-governmental and community-based organizations in the countries in which we work. By embedding research within public health programming, staff and students at CGPH have the unique opportunity to conduct research that addresses critical issues in global public health and has the potential to influence population health and policy.
