Race and Health
This is a new subcommittee this year! The overall aim of this subcommittee is to improve the health (and reduce inequalities in health) of people who are discriminated against because of their race or immigration status. This will be achieved by:
Educate yourselves and others about the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups
Education around issue around race and reproductive/sexual health
Education and advocacy on issue of undocumented migrants particularly women accessing health care.
Ideas for activities organised/ carried out by this subcommittee include: virtual book clubs, producing
presentations for other committee members on the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups, organising panel discussions to engage the wider community. We also look forward to hearing your ideas.
