The death of George Floyd at the hands of the police has enraged the world. The IMF stands together with the Black community in calling for justice and racial equality. We believe unconditionally, that Black lives matter.
Because of the systemic racism that still runs rampant in our communities, Black patients have long been denied access to the best care. Their health status has been undermined by inequalities in every sphere of life including jobs, housing, education, and more. It is paramount that this must change. The IMF is committed to making change happen and it must happen NOW. We will not shrink from our responsibility of ending systemic racism.
