COVID-19 Health Equity Learning Network

COVID-19 Health Equity Learning Network


The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, the National Academy for State Health Policy, and the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy convene governor-appointed health equity COVID-19 task force leaders throughout the nation. The Equity Learning Network  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, the Network launched a case study series featuring innovative state practices to address health equity in COVID-19 response across the country. The team also released a policy brief focused on key strategies and policy considerations to improve equity in vaccine distribution across states and territories. Read more below.
