Black Experiences in Health Care Report, Sinai Health System’s Human Rights & Health Equity Office

We are pleased to share with you a report on the Black Experiences in Health Care (BEHC) Symposium organized and hosted by Sinai Health System’s Human Rights & Health Equity Office and the BEHC Organizing Committee with support from Toronto Central LHIN.

On March 25, 2017 over 130 leaders from the health care, non-profit, education, government, and private sectors convened to discuss health equity challenges in the health care system – particularly in access to services and health outcomes for Black Ontarians. A unifying finding of the day was the need to address systemic racism, implicit bias, and cultural safety within our health care institutions to move toward a more equitable system.
