About the Global Health Advocacy Program

 

 

 

Vision

 

The GHAP strives to create a culture of advocacy and awareness of global health issues

 

among medical students as a means of embracing the CanMeds role of health
advocate, with the goal of creating physician advocates engaged with their patient
populations, locally and globally.

 

Mission

 


To help Canadian medical students become physician advocates through:

 


Representation: Uniting students around a specific global health theme, relevant nationwide,
in order to advocate on behalf of underserved populations.

 


Communication: Disseminating information on this global theme to students, in order to
raise awareness of needs among underserved populations.

 


Service: Providing advocacy training to Canadian medical students, using this unifying
theme, to help them bring about lasting change in their respective communities.

 

Activities

 

The National Officer for Human Rights and Peace (NORP) provides a formal training workshop for a Global Health Advocates (GHAs), who are representatives from each CFMS medical school. This training workshop helps GHAs to develop advocacy skills and network with people working within the field of advocacy, social justice, and human rights. The NORP provides resources and support to GHAs to complete three objectives:

 

1. Conduct a local advocacy training event at their medical school

 


2. Organize a local campaign based on the national theme

 


3.Participate in the national campaign.

 

 

 

The NORP also works to advocate at the national level on the global health theme and other advocacy topics chosen by CFMS.
