[Correspondence] Canada’s global health role

The Lancet Series on Canada’s global health role1 provides an analysis of Canada’s global health leadership, including in research and innovation. However, the authors do not cite the available evaluations of the programmes they compare, particularly the Global Health Research Initiative2 and Grand Challenges Canada.3 The evidence from these evaluations reach a different conclusion than the authors’ opinion that suggested the Global Health Research Initiative had initial success that should have been continued, and that there were mixed views about Grand Challenges Canada’s impact (appendix).
