Enhancing the health and wellbeing of populations internationally

Through multi-disciplinary research and policy work carried out by faculty members across the University of Waterloo in collaboration with researchers and practitioners in other organisations across Canada and the world, the Global Health Policy and Innovation Research Centre (GHPI) is working to advance improvements in the health of populations across the world.


GHPI members Shannon Majowicz and Warren Dodd, as well as School of Public Health Sciences PhD candidate, Binyam N. Desta, are among 11 authors investigating the success of a mulit-partner research partnership in global health. The research, published in Emerging Themes in Epidemiology assesses how a partnership that estimated the foodborne disease burden in four African low- and middle-income countries functioned in terms of the project’s collaboration, management, and implementation process.
