Health Equity Policy Platform for COVID-19 Response and Recovery
A COVID-19 Response & Recovery Health Equity Policy Platform
Governmental public health agencies need to be strong, consistent advocates for equity as they work in concert with other local and state authorities to address the novel coronavirus pandemic. HIP collated a cross-sector policy platform for public health to act on the conditions that create inequities in health outcomes.
Our goal is for public health organizations and practitioners to actively participate in policy change and advocacy work in partnership with other community organizers to advance justice across housing and land use, economic security, community safety, immigration, and more. Our advocacy materials page showcases examples of ways to do that using public health research.
