Abstract

This article discusses the current implementation of the National Policy of Comprehensive Health for the Black Population, by the managers of health professionals' education, with the aim of proposing enhanced presence of the subject "racial equity in Health" in the day to day of higher education institutions (HEI). This research work contains in-depth interviews with 12 different coordinators of Healthcare courses from three universities in the State of São Paulo, Brazil and it has identified that the aforementioned normative frameworks have positively influenced the inclusion of such matters in the observed syllabuses. Nonetheless, those coordinators, in turn, still seem to show lack of knowledge or even disagreement with the mentioned policy.
