By analyzing initiatives related to institutional racism and the collection of color/race data, this chapter elucidates the ways in which discourses on race, racism, and racial identity have taken shape in the Brazilian health sector. The analysis examines how the concept of institutional racism informed programmatic initiatives in cities such as Salvador and Recife during the early and mid 2000s. This chapter also discusses efforts to encourage collection of color/race data in the state of São Paulo and the complexities of promoting discussions of racial identity and racial health disparities among health professionals in Brazil.

Keywords:   institutional racism, color/race data, race, racial health disparities, black population, Salvador, Recife, health professionals, racial identity, São Paulo
