Black Health & Anti-Black Racism in Canadian Healthcare Special Issue

Background

A two-part special issue on Black Health and Anti-Black Racism in Canadian Healthcare was published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) in collaboration with BHEC. These special issues were proposed by BHEC co-leads Dr. Onye Nnorom and Dr. OmiSoore Dryden in 2020. In January 2021, Dr. Nnorom and Dr. Dryden wrote a commentary about anti-Black racism in medicine that was published in the CMAJ

About the Special Issues

What was originally meant to be a single special issue was expanded to two given the high quantity and quality of article submissions. Alongside the articles in the special issues, one article was published in CMAJ Open and another in CMAJ Blogs. The issues focus on anti-Black racism and Black Health by centring the experiences of Black people in Canada.

The first part of the special issue was published on October 24, 2022 and the second on October 31, 2022.
