Children’s Health Policy Centre

We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. We focus on improving social and emotional wellbeing for all children, and on the public policies needed to reach these goals. Our work complements the mission of the Faculty of Health Sciences to advance the health of populations locally, nationally and globally.

We celebrate the First Peoples on whose traditional territories we are all privileged to live and work.

The Children’s Health Policy Centre team honours the legacy of business leader and humanitarian Dr. Djavad Mowafaghian, who died in July 2022. We will always celebrate his generous spirit and his deep commitments to children. Through his generous funding of the Children’s Health Policy Centre, many children and families have benefitted. We will always think of him with thanks.
