Over the last few years, more public health organizations are making a concerted effort to address the impact of racism on health and well-being.

For example:

Alongside these activities, Indigenous and Black practitioners have identified the need for knowledge exchange, support and network development that speaks to the unique experiences of settler colonialism and anti-Blackness in the context of public health practice.
