Call for Manuscripts

The Canadian Journal of Diabetes (CJD) is planning a special issue on “Social Determinants of Health and Diabetes,” with a focus on inequalities.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has provided a stark reminder that health threats are not experienced in the same way across or within communities, in Canada as well as globally. Indigenous, racialized, LGBTQ2S+ and low-income communities bear a disproportionate burden of diabetes due to the complex interaction of multiple social determinants of health, many of which are rooted in colonial processes and structures that altered our socioeconomic, political and cultural systems.

The manuscripts we seek may go beyond describing the relationships between diabetes and diabetes outcomes, with the existence of disparities to include broader conceptual and implementation insights and challenges to changing diabetes care and policy. We encourage papers that use critical race theory and intersectionality as a conceptual, methodological, analytical and praxis-oriented framework to examine the ways multiple, heightened forms of inequality creates obstacles to diabetes care, while also challenging existing social systems to advance the cause of social justice in diabetes outcomes.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript, please contact Tracy Barnes at [email protected] with your topic by June 16, 2021. Due date for manuscript submissions is November 15, 2021.
