Time to AEST
Event Series External event
Professor Delanjathan Devakumar, the lead for the Lancet Series on Racism, Xenophobia, Discrimination, and Health will discuss how the health consequences of racism, xenophobia and discrimination occur in every studied context and can be similar for the related categories of caste, ethnicity, Indigeneity, migratory status, race, religion, and skin colour.
Ill health and health inequities are affected by racism, xenophobia, and discrimination through a host of structural factors and their historical and political roots; interpersonal discrimination cannot be tackled without addressing these complex processes.
