Association for Bahá’í Studies Conference

Paving the path toward social justice: advancing the discourse on anti-racism in medicine

This presentation will explore the definition of health equity, the impact of structural racism on health, and the history of racial inequities in medicine. Connections will be drawn between the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh, the example inspired by 'Abdu’l-Bahá and the current discourse on racism in medicine, health equity and social determinants of health. Anti-racism medical curriculum development will be explored in light of an emerging conceptual framework that connects the current discourse in medicine on anti-racism with Bahá’u’lláh’s fundamental teaching on the oneness of humankind.
