Julia Anderson – Equal Futures Network

As CanWaCH and Equal Futures Network CEO, Julia Anderson champions bold, innovative – and even disruptive – approaches to advancing the health and rights of women and girls around the world.

As Julia will tell you, the network started organically and has grown to over 400 organizations across the nation. Personally, this makes me hopeful we will soon move the needle when it comes to not just equality but justice for all, including in rural spaces.

Election ’21 – The role of foreign policy and development in the campaign with Julia Anderson from CanWaCH

Foreign affairs and international development issues often take a back seat in federal election campaigns.

But this election began as the Taliban took control over Afghanistan and the world is still grappling with a global pandemic.

On this episode of inFocus, I’m joined by Julia Anderson, the CEO at the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health or CanWaCH for short. CanWaCH has over 100 members ranging from NGOs, academic institutions, health professional associations and individuals partnering to improve health outcomes for women and children in more than 1,000 communities worldwide. It has also been a client of mine for several years now.

We sat down as week two of the federal election campaign comes to an end to talk about international development, the global pandemic, and a fascinating research project CanWaCH commissioned to understand public attitudes surrounding foreign affairs and international development.
