Event description

Description

This workshop is offered through the Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC) project, and will help participants better understand how to apply the requirements of the Ontario Public Health Standards, and the Ontario Health Equity Guideline, 2018 (Guideline) through a racial health equity lens.


Racism influences how opportunities for health and wellbeing are distributed. Given the existence of social and racial health inequities, it is imperative that public health adopt anti-racist approaches to understand and transform views, practices and policies at the root of racial discrimination.


The Guideline requires public health to apply anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and culturally safe approaches to address health inequities. This workshop will present the pathways to racial health inequities, identify racism as a public health issue, and identify strategies for developing a decolonial and anti-racist public health practice.
