For centuries, black communities have experienced systemic racism and discrimination that manifests in all facets of life including attainment of health and wellbeing.
The purpose of this webpage is to raise awareness of the black experience and the importance of effective allyship in removing systemic barriers to health equity. Nursing Now, a global network of nurses and health advocates, believes black lives matter everywhere; today, tomorrow and every day.
