Navigating a Colonial Institution:
Medicine and Systemic Racism
This year, in light of the social movement organized by Black Lives Matter surrounding the murder of George Floyd and many other black Americans, the Health and Human Rights Conference has decided to explore the theme: Navigating a Colonial Institution: Medicine and Systemic Racism.
The purpose of selecting this theme is to continue to explore the human rights inequities and systemic racism embedded in healthcare from its colonial power system.
Healthcare disproportionately disadvantages Black, Indigenous, immigrant, and ethnic minority populations.
