TAIBU Community Health Centre’s Proportionate Response to a Disproportionate Pandemic

Sara Bhatti, Josephine Pham, Amna Iqbal and Liben Gebremikael


Data from the City of Toronto indicate that the majority of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations as of December 2021 were among individuals who identified with a racialized group. In this paper, we summarize how TAIBU Community Health Centre, an organization mandated to serve the Black and Francophone communities in the Greater Toronto Area, prioritized and embedded race-based data collection in order to highlight the specific experiences of Black and racialized communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lessons learned from this work can be used to help support race-based data collection.
