Topic: Discrimination in Healthcare
Discrimination has been a part of many aspects of society for centuries, and healthcare is no exception. From higher maternal mortality rates for Black women to implicit biases that lead to some minority groups being barred from receiving adequate pain medication in the emergency room, medical biases are a pervasive influence that affects patients globally. Prejudice regarding race, gender, and religion are evident in healthcare, and present themselves differently in various situations. In order to combat these acts of bigotry, delegates must develop creative and specific solutions for a range of nations involved, as well as the international community as a whole.
