This webinar is a partnership between the Alliance for Healthier Communities and CATIE (Canada's source for HIV and Hepatitis C information)
Anti-racism movements around the world have put increased focus on disparities experienced by Black, Indigenous and people of colour. Furthermore, the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has exacerbated health inequities and disparities in racialized communities.
Race-based epidemiological data are not currently being collected in a consistent manner across Canada, including during this pandemic and in regards to HIV and hepatitis C. Some public health authorities have committed to collecting race-based data, however collective action is needed to begin collecting and using this data and translating it into public health and community action.
This webinar will discuss the path forward and tangible next steps for race-based data collection and how they can address health disparities experienced by racialized groups, including African, Caribbean and Black Canadians, Indigenous people, immigrants and newcomers.
