Going Beyond Statistics: Impact of COVID on BAME lives (POST CONFERENCE BRIEF)
The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Health and Care Professionals
(BAMEHCP) is a Network of Networks for BAME health and social care
professionals working towards a fairer and more equitable society.
The story of pandemics is the story of inequalities.
The number of BAME frontline workers who have lost their lives or have been affected by COVID-19 is deeply troubling. To gain a deeper understanding of the issues and influence changes in policy, nearly 2000 key BAME representatives registered for a webinar themed ‘Going Beyond Statistics, Impact of COVID on BAME lives’ 22nd May 2020.
