Resources On Health & Equity
Disproportionate outcomes for people of color related to COVID-19 most recently illuminate the structural barriers to good health faced by our nation’s most vulnerable and marginalized populations. The realities of systemic bias and structural racism that give rise to inequities have health consequences for individuals and communities across the United States and on the well-being of our society.
The Culture of Health Program is committed to advancing the scientific underpinnings for progress in health equity and sharing evidence-based strategies to bring about the transformation necessary to dismantle structural racism and ultimately achieve health equity for all - mitigating the effects of the current crisis and safeguarding the well-being of our nation for the future.
We have therefore compiled a list of resources on health equity in the context of COVID-19. We will continue to expand our knowledge and update these resources.
