COVID-19 & Health Equity Community Assessment Summary

Starting in late March, we embarked on an outreach effort aimed at collecting information about the impact of the COVID-19 on underserved communities to help center health equity in Connecticut’s response and recovery efforts. This effort is ongoing. These results are shared with policymakers, other decision-makers, philanthropy, and Health Equity Solutions’ partners on a regular basis. The data is collected through an online survey and in one-on-one conversations. The survey asks respondents to identify concerns and proposed solutions to those concerns. Below, we list the most common topics in each of those two categories. Concerns refer to unmet needs or rising issues and solutions are suggestions for addressing concerns.
