Improve the healthcare of Indigenous peoples with arthritis in Canada
The largest racial health inequalities in Canada are faced by Indigenous peoples who have some of the highest rates of serious or life-threatening arthritis in the world, are at greater risk for becoming disabled by arthritis and also a high rate of co-morbidities like heart disease, hypertension, asthma, arthritis and cancer.
There is strong evidence that these health gaps are not the outcome of genetic differences but are instead the result of social and economic conditions shaped by a long history of colonialism, racism, destruction of land and food resources, and the trauma that comes with these experiences.
It’s important to let elected officials know about health inequities in Canada such as those experienced by Indigenous people. Your voice matters.
