The COVID-19 pandemic has been a shared trauma for everyone on the globe. Yet some have been affected more than others in unjust ways. With a social determinants health approach, the panelists will explore health inequalities during this pandemic

The University of Toronto International Health Program (UTIHP) Student Organization was established in 1988 as a student group by two University of Toronto medical students, in response to an increased interest in Global Health. Since then, the identity of the group has been constantly evolving.

UTIHP has proliferated into committees that focus their efforts towards specific issues through the implementation of various initiatives throughout the year. UTIHP remains a dynamic student group that balances the interests of the student body with the healthcare needs at the local and global level. 

Due to this unprecedented year we have decided to make UTIHP Student Organization a fully remote club! This means that all our events and workshops will be hosted virtually. We are encouraged by this change since we will be able to connect with a global audience. Please view each subcommittee's page for details regarding their  adjustments for this year.
