COVID-19 Health Equity Learning Network

COVID-19 Health Equity Learning Network


In collaboration with the National Governors Association (NGA), the Duke-Margolis Center launched the COVID-19 Health Equity Learning Network. The Equity Learning Network consists of health equity COVID-19 task force leaders throughout the nation and serves as a platform for sharing best and promising practices for improving health equity in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of this initiative, NGA and the Margolis Center started a series of case studies that feature innovative state practices to address health equity in COVID-19 response across the country. The first case study showcased the work and achievements of the Michigan Coronavirus Racial Disparities Task Force. Future case studies will be released in months to come. The team also released a policy brief focused on key strategies and policy considerations to improve equity in vaccine distribution across states and territories.
