Realizing Resilience Part 3: Two Years Later, Updates on Health Center and Social Sector Response to Address Social Drivers of Health Needs during COVID-19




Description

This publication summarizes key takeaways identified by health centers when detecting, prioritizing, and informing community health-related social needs that were magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given the ongoing needs of structurally marginalized communities during COVID-19, NACHC assessed health centers to get an overview on their efforts to address social drivers of health (SDOH) and the use of SDOH data to advance health equity. This publication summarizes key takeaways identified by health centers when detecting, prioritizing, and informing community health-related social needs that were magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic. The third iteration of this publication will focus on assessing and addressing SDOH needs of special and vulnerable populations, the use of funding from the American Rescue Plan Act to address SDOH needs, and initial thoughts on health center capacity to address SDOH needs once the public health emergency declaration expires. Findings will be shared within context of the health center journey in navigating SDOH needs during COVID-19 and policy implications/considerations related to health equity.
