Canada’s engagement with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) - Strategic Priorities for the Government of Canada. 2013-2016
This document lays out the Government of Canada’s five strategic priorities for engagement with the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) over the next three years, while Canada has a seat on the Executive Committee of PAHO. This document is a tool to guide Canada’s engagement with PAHO and will assist in determining areas that Canada will strategically advance at the governing body meetings of PAHO, as well as to assess the need to provide technical assistance and support capacity building in the region. It is in Canada’s interest to have strong public health infrastructure in the Region. By reducing the risk of illness elsewhere and increasing the capacity of other countries in the Region to respond to public health threats, we help protect the health of Canadians.
