Who Cares? The Human Dimension of Global Health

Undoubtedly, human resources represent the most critical and precious
assets in the struggle to achieve global health.  In 2006,
discussions around human resources for health will dominate the
international health stage as the World Health Organization dedicates
both World Health Day and its annual report to the men and women who
make health care happen and assure the existence and quality of the
services they deliver.

This year, the Canadian Conference on International Health will offer
participants the opportunity to explore the field of human resources,
across all aspects of the health system, and encourage a broad, but
critical, approach to the theme stressing, as always, the links between
research, advocacy and action.

The call for abstracts is available at and the deadline is May 15, 2006.  For more information, contact or visit
