COVID-19 Response & Recovery

Coronavirus policy solutions that prioritize health equity

Underserved members of our society — communities of color, low-income families, immigrants, and others — are bearing the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic because existing systems, laws, and policies have perpetually blocked their access to drivers of health and economic prosperity. The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the grievous consequences of discriminatory laws and policies in this country.

Governments and businesses must take action to ensure that equity is front and center in their policy responses to COVID-19. ChangeLab Solutions’ legal and policy team has created a blog series to offer immediate solutions for communities and local governments that wish to prioritize health equity.

In addition, we have created blog posts to explain what decisionmakers need to know about the legal requirements related to social distancing, isolation, and quarantine.

Access all of these resources below, or learn more about all of our areas of work.

At ChangeLab Solutions, we are working to change systems, policies, and laws that contribute to centuries-old health and economic disparities. We will continue our research, analysis, technical assistance, trainings, and model policy development, working toward solutions that will promote health during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. If you have opportunities to collaborate, questions to pose, or solutions to offer, please contact us.
