OFFICE OF HEALTH EQUITY
AND CRISIS COORDINATION
Across America, at-risk and underserved populations are suffering higher infection rates, hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID-19. At the GHC3, we’re bringing together the best minds in healthcare, emergency response, business and technology to find solutions.
We’re implementing the latest CDC guidelines during a pilot program at KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools. A national rollout is planned.
We’re working with faith and religious leaders who serve minority populations to create best practices for worshipping safely.
We’re spearheading collaborative efforts to restart the economy by gathering employer data, researching best practices, and delivering comprehensive guidance.
We’ve brought together various NGOs that target underserved populations to identify obstacles to COVID-19 testing.
We’re working to ensure equitable vaccine distribution through communication and community engagement.
We’re working with private and philanthropic organizations to address the mental health crisis in underserved populations.
The synchronous effects of the pandemic have uncovered the depth of inequities among minority and rural populations. The longstanding adversities are displayed through variances in health, education, civic and economic participation and are a detriment to our local and global economies. With a vision for eliminating inequities, GHC3 and PTEC have partnered to implement innovative measures of technology, health indexes, and related data to inform solutions to charter an equitable future.
