NOA statement on racism

Recent events have brought to the forefront the systemic racism faced by Black and ethnic minority communities across the globe. The National Orthopaedic Alliance (NOA) would like to confirm that we echo the statement from the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) that the impact of discrimination on Black and minority communities cannot be overlooked or underestimated and the NOA believes in equality of all regardless of race, gender or religion.

This issue affects us all, and we all have a part to play in the solution. The NOA is committed to supporting our colleagues, member organisations and our partners in any way we can to influence systems and strategies that negatively affect our Black and ethnic minority communities.
