ACB Caucus

Our African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) Caucus for Health Equity – is a rapidly growing group of sixty ACB leaders from a variety of backgrounds (people with lived HIV experience, provincial and front-line health and social care providers, front-line legal services, public health, ethnocultural organizations, business owners and academic and community researchers) who currently develop and test solutions towards closing racialized health gaps between ACB people and non-ACB people.

Approximately 31 ideas for interventions in ACB communities have been recommended by the Caucus and prioritized.
Our Caucus is currently made up of a group of skilled professionals who are associated with well-established institutions within both public and private sectors to support connections between the Caucus and these institutions as needed.

As a Caucus, we try to:

Focus on promoting health and wellbeing in the community rather than through service centers

Recognize the strengths within ACB communities and use that to empower our communities

Promote equity in health and healthcare by working with and alongside individuals and groups who face barriers to achieving good health.

Seek to increase people’s control over their health and lives

Use methods that encourage the members of the public to participate in our initiatives
