The AHA recently launched a new webpage dedicated to disseminating accessible information focused on addressing the equity issues in COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccine administration efforts.

The page hosts a wealth of tools and content that link back to resources developed by our strategic partners and other organizations to equip hospitals and health systems with culturally appropriate ways to engage patient populations and communities who are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

“Hospital and health system leaders and caregivers must work hard to build trust within structurally marginalized communities and engage in strategies that will be effective to promote vaccine confidence, improve communication and enhance access,” said Joy Lewis, AHA senior vice president of health equity. “Our new webpage is part of AHA’s participation in a broad national push to share resources that support decision-making that can protect those populations disproportionately suffering from COVID-19.
