The International Black Health Conference will be the first of its kind in Canada and represents an unprecedented opportunity for a local, national and international gathering for the sole purpose of improving Black health outcomes across the African Diaspora, informing clinical practice, policy change, showcasing achievements and promising practices.
The overall goal of this conference is to develop a report outlining best practice approaches for identifying and leveraging strategic multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral partnerships and targeted knowledge mobilization approaches for addressing health disparities in diverse Black communities in Canada and globally, through research, clinical services, health policy, community mobilization and recommendations.
Therefore, the main audiences for this project include professors, researchers, students, clinicians, health policymakers, community organizations, government officials, and diverse Black communities in Canada and globally.
