Professor Solina Richter
University of Saskatchewan

Dr. Solina Richter is professor and Dean of the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan, Canada. Dr. Richter believes that global collaboration has always been a fundamental part of scholarly development; globalization is accelerating the scope, rate, and importance of international research. She highlights that global collaboration is a prerequisite to bring different perspectives to dialogue on key national and global issues; it facilitates our contribution to the global collection of knowledge and expertise on the management of the social determinants of health. It is essential that researchers combine resources and expertise on an international scale to adequately address complex and interconnected global issues.

Her research program focuses on the social determinants of health and frontline practices that protect and promote the health of low socioeconomic populations. It further focusses on building capacity for partnerships and collaboration to address global health. Current projects relate to studies that focus on a better understanding of maternal health, how people within or across cultures share the same understandings of health, what it means to be healthy, and practices for maintaining health.
