The QES-AS is made possible with financial support from IDRC and SSHRC.


General Information:
Inequities in maternal and child health (MCH) outcomes and access exist globally for certain groups, including for example those impacted by armed conflict, remote populations, displaced persons, and people with disabilities. Unfortunately, these groups are rarely prioritized in research or policy.ARCH at Queen’s University is hosting awards for individual researchers through the Queen Elizabeth Scholars – Advanced Scholars Network for Equity in Maternal and Child Health from May to August 2019. Individual awards will support incoming and out-going research exchanges betweenresearchers at Queen’s University and international partner institutions. The objective of all research exchanges will be to build research capacity at LMIC partner institutions to improve equity in MCH, and to create an international network of engaged, ethical and innovative global health researchers supporting equity in MCH.

Individual researchers eligible for exchanges can be defined as PhD, post-PhD, or early career researchers. Scholars selected to join Queen’s Network for Maternal and Child Health Equity will be affiliated with a university during their exchange but must also spend one third of their placement working with non-academic groups (NGOs, government ministries, community groups, etc.). The overall exchanges will be 90 days in duration.
