This short podcast about social justice reflects a session that was presented at the 2018 International Rural Nursing Conference held in Nashville, Tennessee USA. Dr Pamela Payne Foster from the University of Alabama initially defines social justice and then proceeds to talk about health disparities that affect various racial-ethnic groups. Dr Foster particularly focuses on the work she has conducted in relation to HIV AIDs. She describes how she engaged religious communities to embrace this condition as a social justice issue rather than a stigmatised disease, which resulted in greater community acceptance and treatment for this underserved population.
