State of BC Health

Your monthly update from the BC Health Coalition

UPDATE February is Black History Month: What does this mean for public health in BC?

Throughout the month of February, we have been sharing resources on our Facebook and Twitter accounts in honour of Black History Month. These resources highlight historical and current Black contributions to health care in Canada. They also highlight the disproportionate negative impact carried by the Black community whether as workers in seniors’ care, as underserved patients of the medical system, or as targets of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know racism, particularly anti-Black racism, is a public health issue. That is why we supported the BCCLA’s call to implement an immediate ban on the arbitrary, racist, and illegal practice of police street checks in Vancouver. We also know the work of an equitable and just health care system for Black people goes beyond this month. That is why we support defunding the police in order to support integrated health care and social services. Read more from...

Action Dispatch: Still watching for public solutions to wait times

NationBuilder r1

Action Dispatch

Paov --

The BC government released the sixth update to its Surgical Renewal Plan last month, and we are concerned by what we see. We need your help to respond!

Last June, with the release of the Surgical Renewal Plan, over 4000 of you wrote a letter to Minister of Health Adrian Dix. Together we asked the government to be bold and implement already proven public solutions that build the public capacity of our surgical system, now and far into the future. Today, we are asking you to follow-up with another letter telling Minister Dix you are still waiting for investments in public, long-term solutions to reduce surgical wait times. With your support, we can pressure the government to invest in our public health care system.

[evoz] correction re time for SIROCCO film

This event will be at 5 pm PST and 7 pm CST. Sunday Jam,. 31 Update on ZOOM on Western Sahara - see below post: Just confirmed that Senia Bachir, one of the main characters in Sirocco, will be one of our speakers at the event this coming Sunday!! Here is a little bit about her: Senia Bachir is a refugee and activist from Western Sahara. For nearly two decades, she has been advocating for the freedom and the right to self-determination of her people, as well as exposing the brutal and oppressive occupation of Morocco. Since 2015, she has been working in the office of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission. An invitation to an upcoming ZOOM on Western Sahara. Africa's last colony is occupied by Morocco. The Canadian fertilizer company NUTRIEN ( originally Potash Corp and Agrium) imported illegally mined phosphates from WS that a company owned by the Moroccan government extracts and exports. This is illegal under the Geneva Conventions which Canada has signed but yet allows this import. See the moving film of the story of Westerns Sahara with Saharwis in the refugee camps in Algeria and those brutally oppressed in Western Sahara. SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2021 AT 5...
