Abstract:
Purpose: To highlight some of the major achievements of the Canadian Institute of Health Research and the Global Health Research Initiative, in the field of maternal and child health in the developing world. Also, to provide a perspective on the future actions of the groups. Background: The Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) is the Government of Canada's agency for health research. CIHR's mission is to create new scientific knowledge and to catalyze its translation into improved health, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened Canadian health care system. Composed of 13 Institutes, CIHR provides leadership and support to close to 10,000 health researchers and trainees across Canada. One of CIHR's thirteen Institutes, the Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) promotes and supports the creation and application of knowledge that contributes to the improvement of the health of children, youth, and mothers in Canada and in the rest of the world. With the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Health Canada (HC) and the International Development Research Centre (IRDC) CIHR has entered into a cooperation arrangement aimed at coordinating and building on Canada's global health research activities through the Global Health Research Initiative (GHRI). The GHRI marks a first in Canadian history, bringing together knowledge, experience and resources of overseas development agencies, the Canadian Health department and the major federal health research funding agency of Canada. The collaborative approach serves as a framework for activities aimed at shaping and responding to the global health research agenda; influencing policy and policy coherence relating to global health research; and facilitating information sharing among partner agencies.
