Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness is seeking for your feedback

The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness is seeking feedback from the public on discrimination in the healthcare system, to aid the development of a provincial health equity framework. Members of communities whom may have experienced systemic racism and/or discrimination in their interactions with the Nova Scotia health system are invited to submit feedback through an online survey, which can be found here.

These communities include “Indigenous people, African Nova Scotians and people of African descent, racialized groups, 2SLGBTIQA+ people, those with disabilities, immigrants, refugees and historically underrepresented populations”. The survey will be open until January 27, 2023, and the publication of the health equity framework is expected in Summer 2023. For more information, see the provincial news release here.
