COVID-19

PHI and its programs are working rapidly to respond to COVID-19, on local, national and global levels. PHI’s programs are working within and alongside our most-impacted communities, creating a workforce from within impacted neighborhoods, working with trusted messengers and community-based organizations to dismantle barriers to vaccine access, and partnering with private, governmental and philanthropic sectors to bolster efforts.

Support this important work

PHI's strategic initiatives are urgent or emerging health issues that need attention, resources and expertise. Here's how you can help.

Supporting communities in responding to COVID-19 with public health best practices

Because of the speed with which new information, policies and recommendations related to COVID-19 are being updated, we are linking directly to many of our program source materials, and including time stamps so you know how recently information has been updated.

For the most updated guidelines on COVID-19 vaccinations, transmission, treatment and protection, visit the CDC website.

Dismantling barriers to vaccine access

Structural and systemic barriers mean that the people who are hardest hit by the pandemic—including Black and brown people, immigrants and essential workers—have less access to vaccines. We know what is working: investing in trusted community experts, organizations and networks, using culturally resonant primary language materials and outreach, and bringing down barriers to accessing vaccines. Explore PHI resources for building better vaccine access in your community.

Public health isn't a building, a person, or a function. We are all public health and we all have a role to play in keeping each other healthy: Health care providers, schools, community-based organizations, local health departments and more, including leaders like you.
