The Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH) is a Canadian non-governmental organization that works domestically and internationally to reduce global health inequities and strengthen health systems. Founded in 1977, CSIH attempts to realize its goals through the dedication of its membership and staff.
CSIH members share a common interest and commitment to global health, global health research, and international development. Our members include individuals and organizations representing a broad spectrum of experience in various disciplines. Members contribute considerable time and energy to CSIH’s many activities, programs and projects, and connect CSIH to other organizations in Canada and abroad. Through the engagement of its members and partners, CSIH endeavors to bring together various communities engaged in global health in order to promote a collective agenda.
In 2009, CSIH established its branch office in Astana, Kazakhstan. As of now, CSIH is involved in the implementation of Kazakhstan Health Technology Transfer and Institutional Reform co-funded by World Bank and Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan Republic.
