Embedding Equity into Emergency Operations: Strategies During COVID-19 & Beyond


As jurisdictions struggle with emergency response to COVID-19, coupled with elevated needs to advance racial and social equity, we wanted to share an excellent brief just released by a collaborative we are part of, the Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII). The brief, “Embedding Equity into Emergency Operations: Strategies for Local Health Departments During COVID-19 & Beyond.” outlines case studies, resources, and priority recommendations that counties and cities can take to explicitly and intentionally embed equity staff and practices into their emergency operations structures and throughout the public health emergency response and recovery process.
