Health Equity Clicks: Conversation: Is it really “us” versus “them”? How stigma affects health inequities
This conversation will take place in English and French.
Canada’s chief public health officer (CPHO) recently released a report titled Addressing stigma: towards a more inclusive health system, which describes the impact of stigma on health through multiple pathways.
Drawing from this publication, we are asking you, the members of Health Equity Clicks: Community, to reflect on the topic of stigma, how it interferes with public health action to address health inequities, and how it can be mitigated/challenged within the context of public health work.
In this online discussion, we will highlight the CPHO report and explore what public health actors can do to address the role of stigma in our work.
