Racism, Violence and Health Project

The Racism, Violence and Health (RVH) Project is working with African Canadian community members in Halifax, Toronto, and Calgary to study the impact of violence – including the violence of racism – on their health and well being. It begins with the experiences of those who everyday witness, experience, and live with the effects of racism and violence. It continues with an emphasis on increasing the capacity of communities, families and individuals to understand the impact of racism and violence on their health and well-being. It will end with the development of health education materials based on what has been learned over the five year period of the project.
