Ep. 47: COVID-19 and South Asian Communities


On the 28th episode of our series, we discuss some of the structural determinants, intensified by COVID-19, that are playing a role in how the pandemic affects South Asian communities in Canada.

We spoke with Dr. Ananya Tina Banerjee, Assistant Professor at the School of Population and Global Health, in the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health at the University of Toronto. She is also the founder of the South Asian Health Research Hub, a team of public health scholars from the South Asian diaspora working towards improving health outcomes in their communities using a health equity lens.
