APCI 1.0 Project

The APCI study was undertaken in collaboration with community stakeholders to rectify the scarcity of data on the impact of COVID-19 on the social determinants of health and access to healthcare services in African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities across the country. A key objective was to provide access to study data about ACB communities in Canada to those who need it. We developed a data visualization dashboard as a knowledge mobilization (KMb) tool. The dashboard featured visualizations of data collected from 1,556 people who completed the APCI survey on the impact COVID-19 had on Canadian ACB communities’ access to health services related to sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBI).

In 2022, the research team launched a follow-up project—APCI 2.0.
