Who is Our Kids’ Health?
Now more than ever, Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) are experiencing isolation and distress. Global crises like COVID-19, war and racism have exacerbated their lack of access to supports and networks. As a result, parents are seeking connection and parenting information through social media. However, existing online parenting resources are primarily Eurocentric and in English, and many are not evidence-based nor culturally relevant.
As such, Our Kids’ Health Network was launched to deliver information regarding the unique health needs of the BIPOC community. Our channels are currently available for the following cultural-linguistic groups: Arabic Black, Cantonese, Filipino, Hispanic, Inuit, Mandarin, Punjabi, Tamil, and Ukrainian.
Our project aims to improve overall wellness in these BIPOC communities by empowering the parents, improving parenting competence and stress, creating supportive virtual parenting communities, and sharing evidence-based and culturally relevant health contents that can be used by families and healthcare providers.
