Marginalized populations

Marginalized populations are groups and communities that experience discrimination and exclusion (social, political and economic) because of unequal power relationships across economic, political, social and cultural dimensions.

When speaking with a public health colleague, you could say:

“A mom at Baby Talk said her friend wanted to come but was not comfortable because she doesn’t always understand everything and she feels like she doesn’t fit in.  She is a recent immigrant and this makes me wonder about whether we have evaluated our services in relation to marginalized populations.

Ce que disent les gens

  • I particularly like this term as it implies that people are vulnerable due to the actions of others ... in this case social or structural actions (often called structural violence) that could be changed if we agreed to do so collectively.  It’s not something that randomly or accidentally happens to people which is what “vulnerable” suggests to me.
