Do you believe that access to healthcare is a basic human right? Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity and a chance to get involved with Partners In Health Canada? Are you committed to improving the future of global health?
The Partners In Health Canada Working Group is a dynamic and creative group of people all ages who are passionate about the fight for health. Members—including Students for Partners In Health Canada alumni, graduate students, medical students, and professionals—work to raise awareness of PIH Canada and issues in the global health landscape. Active across three subgroups—Education, Digital Engagement, and Fundraising—members volunteer their time and energy to promote positive change. This working group is self-led and works toward a series of self-defined objectives throughout the year. We continually welcome new members to get involved with any of our three subgroups. We hope to build a strong team and welcome your diversity and breadth of knowledge. As a community of colleagues, we envision a network where we can collaborate across subgroups and create opportunities for meaningful involvement.
The Education Group
Projects include monthly blog posts, commentary submissions to journals (e.g. Health & Human Rights Journal and Lancet Global Health Blogs), and poster/presentation abstract submissions to global health related conferences.
The Digital Engagement Group
The Digital Engagement subgroup, led by Victoria Watson, launched in summer of 2016 and aims to leverage tools available in the digital landscape to raise awareness of PIH’s unique approach to global health. If you're interested in social media, event promotion, and/or story telling, this is the subgroup for you.
The Fundraising Group
The Fundraising Subgroup is actively recruiting for new members. If you’re familiar with peer-to-peer fundraising, work well in a team and feel confident organizing events and bringing new people into social justice work, this is a great opportunity to gain grassroots fundraising experience.
Applications for the 2017/2018 year are now closed.
We hope to build a strong team with our Working Group and welcome your diversity and breadth of knowledge. As a community of colleagues, we envision a network where we can collaborate across subgroups and create opportunities for meaningful involvement. For more information about the subgroup leader roles, or about the Working Group in general, please contact Dilani Logan, the Working Group Co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!Back to Top
