MSHN Sexual Health Network Forum: Racism and Health @ Multicultural Hub
Apr 19 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
MSHN Sexual Health Network Forum: Racism and Health @ Multicultural Hub | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

Join the Multicultural Sexual Health Network for a forum about racism and its effects on health.

Many factors affect sexual health. Racism is a less obvious, but pervasive determinant of health disparity. 

Experiences of racism in health care settings can deter people from seeking preventative options or management of issues.  In the dating scene, racism may affect an individual’s agency to insist on condom use.  

Racism is embedded in everyday practices as well as in systems and structures of essential services, not only in health care, but also in other settings, such as housing or welfare.

At the Multicultural Sexual Health Network forum, guest speakers and M-CAN members will explore these everyday practices and broader systemic and organisational structures.

Register here.

Professor Yin Paradies, Alfred Deakin Professor and Chair in Race Relations, Deakin University

Robert Gruhn, Policy Officer, Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria

Gulnara Abbasova, Executive Officer, Migrant and Refugee Women’s Health Partnership
