This edition’s editorial, entitled “What would it take for health promotion to take structural racism seriously?,” was written by Sume Ndumbe-Eyoh, Senior Knowledge Translation Specialist, National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health, Canada. In it, she argues that health promotion knowledge and interventions cannot be ‘neutral’ and calls for the challenging of structural racism and the racist inequities it creates. In other words, for Ndumbe-Eyoh, “Health promotion has to contribute to two distinct but complementary agendas: understanding the impact and experiences of racism on health in its broadest sense, and developing the science and practice of anti-racism in health promotion.”
