sickkidsGCHThe SickKids Centre for Global Child Health provides a dedicated hub for global child health-focused activities and connects researchers and health-care professionals around the world.

The centre is dedicated to improving the lives of children and their families in resource-poor environments through collaboration in groundbreaking research, sustainable capacity building through education, the active communication of results through advocacy, and through promoting improved child health through knowledge and networks.


The Coalition of Centres in Global Child Health (CCGCH) provides a common platform through which academic centres working in global or international child health, from around the world, can connect to enhance research capacity, collaboration and knowledge exchange in order to improve child survival, health and development.

The Centre signed the Coalition Document in January 2016.


The Centre for Global Child Health (C-GCH) at The Hospital for Sick Children is recruiting fellows for the Academic Global Child Health Fellowship training program for the start date of July 2018.

The Global Child Health Fellowship program is the first in Canada to concentrate on preparing candidates for academic careers in global child health. The exceptional training program will serve to develop leadership and scholarly skills in working with disadvantaged paediatric populations (from neonates to adolescents), and their families, throughout the world.

Applicants should be looking to start a challenging 2-year fellowship program. This interdisciplinary program will be accepting applicants from a variety of clinical, health care, research, and other related professional backgrounds (e.g. MDs, nursing, allied health, epidemiology, etc.)
