The Canadian Conference on Global Health 2022 (CCGH 2022) is scheduled to occur November 21st to 23rd. This year’s theme is ‘Towards Inclusive Global Health: Research & Practice Priorities in Uncertain Times.’

In recognition of the important role community members and individuals with lived experience play in health research, the HIV-HCV Knowledge to Action program (funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)) will be offering Community Registration Scholarships for FREE attendance (virtual or in-person) to CCGH 2022. All other costs (travel, accomodation, technology, child care, etc.) involved with the recipient’s participation at CCGH 2022 will not be covered.

These scholarships are intended to encourage the representation of people with lived experience and support participation from often under-represented communities, as well as people working in Community-Based Organizations whose work is focused on supporting these communities. Key populations, as identified by PHAC through the Community Action Fund, include the following populations:

• Living with HIV or Hepatitis C
• Gay, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men
• People who use drugs
• First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples
• Racialized people and migrants, particularly from regions with high HIV or hepatitis C
prevalence
• Sex workers and their clients
• People living in or recently released from correctional facilities
• Transgender and non-binary people

Any person working, volunteering, or living with experience relevant to the above communities is eligible to apply. Preference will be given to those who have lived experience.

Application deadline is October 17, 2022.
