At the international level, Canada plays a unique leadership role when it comes to public health. Public health affects Canada’s interests in domestic health, economic development, geopolitics, governance, and universal values such as equity for all citizens.

This forward-looking event, intended for Government of Canada executives, features guest speaker Mark P. Lagon, who will address the evolving US health policy in the bilateral and multilateral realms, while explaining how an integrated, all-of-government approach to health care is essential.

Participants will learn more about the roles of the US and Canada in global health care, the perspectives of low and low-middle income countries, and the stakes of an integrated approach to global health security and access to care.

On-site seats are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.


  • Mark P. Lagon, Ph.D., Amb. (ret.), Chief Policy Officer, Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria


  • Anna Romano, Executive Faculty, Canada School of Public Service
