Social determinants and inequities in health for Black Canadians: A Snapshot

The Public Health Agency of Canada is committed to the ongoing measuring, monitoring, and reporting of health inequalities and determinants of health for Canadians, as reflected in the ongoing work of the Health Inequalities Reporting Initiative and the commitment to building and sharing knowledge through the Mental Health of Black Canadian Initiative.

 

The Agency is pleased to release a new resource entitled “Social determinants and inequities in health for Black Canadians: A Snapshot”. The Snapshot reports national data on inequalities in health outcomes and determinants of health for Black Canadians, and highlights how Anti-Black racism and systemic discrimination are key drivers of health and social inequities faced by diverse Black Canadian communities.
