The Black Lives Matter movement and health inequalities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With the recent Black Lives Matter movement, existing racial inequalities in various sectors of the United States have regained prominence. Due to the pandemic, statistics on racial disparities in the health sector have been aggravated. On a related note, while the #Black Lives Matter movement received substantial support from India's online community, deeply entrenched inequalities in terms of caste, community and gender in India's health sector need to be critically evaluated as well. This paper is an attempt to understand how the awareness generated by the Black Lives Matter movement could be an opportunity to address structural inequalities in India's own public health system.
