Dr. Karima Velji represents Canada at World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland

Dr.Karima Velji attended the WHO conference in Geneva, Switzerland. She was attending with Federal Minister for Health, Hon. Jane Philpott.

“The World Health Assembly offers a timely and important opportunity to discuss the critical shortages of skilled health professionals expected globally in the years ahead. The demographic changes happening in Canada and throughout the world mean innovative care delivery models are needed to reorient care from hospitals to community and home-based models. The WHA discussions will highlight the need to promote multidisciplinary teams, emphasizing issues of credentialing, training and retaining workers within the global health care sector. Canada’s leadership is essential to inform discussion to ensure resources are used efficiently, protecting the long term sustainability of the universal health care system that makes Canadians proud, and promoting our strengths on the global stage.”
