My work is a pioneering, Canadian-led team effort of more than three decades that strengthens healthcare systems worldwide, using health as a bridge to peace. I am working today with my colleagues on the same global projects and programs as we have done almost constantly for the past many years, demonstrating the unique global value of the Canada International Scientific Exchange Program (CISEPO). CISEPO’s strength is in the meaningful projects and high-impact programs created for our partners abroad and the societies and cultures that they represent. These include telehealth initiatives, exchanges here in Canada, and CISEPO’s on-the-ground activities in the health sector. We bring together the public sector and schools of medicine and public health across the globe.
Our work is consistent with and elevates the Ashoka mission through the creation of a large cadre of changemakers in Canada and abroad. We empower these young health professionals to grow the network and build a better world through education and professional development within our social contract.
I'm working today, with my colleagues, on the same global projects and programs as we've done almost constantly for the past many years in demonstrating the unique global value of CISEPO. We are creating meaningful projects and programs of high-impact in the health sector for our partners abroad and the societies and cultures that they represent, through telehealth and through exchanges here in Canada and through CISEPO on the ground activities. We bring together universities and medical schools and schools for public health and elements of the public sector such as schools across the globe in health and public health. You can best understand what we do by looking at our CISEPO website www.CISEPO.ca. What we do that is consistent with and elevates the Ashoka mission in that we have created a large cadre of changemakers in Canada and abroad and young health professionals who continue to grow the network and remain committed to the cause of building a better world through education and professional development within our social contract.
