Towards Unity for Health

The Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) conference was an international, intersectoral, and intergenerational global health conference that brought together health partners, universities, community institutions, and thought leaders from around the world on the traditional and unceded territory of the xʷmәθkwәy̓әm (Musqueam) Nation at the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver in August 2022. 

TUFH 2022 was hosted by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC, The Network: Towards Unity for Health, and BC Patient Safety and Quality Council and planned in partnership with the Métis Nation of British Columbia, First Nations Health Authority, and UBC Health.

Under the theme of Moving Forward Together: Unity for Health for All, the conference focused on fostering equitable community-oriented health services, education, and research, with the goal of improving health locally and globally.

TUFH 2022 gathered members from around the world for knowledge sharing and vibrant discussion through which participants developed a collective commitment to help build a healthier and more just world. To see the details of these commitments, download the TUFH 2022 Declaration:
