Ohio Health Equity Work Group
The Commission on Minority Health is a part of the Ohio Health Equity Work Group which was coordinated by the Ohio Department of Health to focus on COVID response and recovery from a health equity lens. This resulted in multiple recommendations to address racial and ethnic populations along with the creation of the comprehensive report – Ohio’s COVID-19 Populations Needs Assessment – Minimizing the Disparate Impact of the Pandemic and Building Foundations for Health Equity.
The report identifies the unique needs of Ohio’s diverse populations at-risk for disparities in accessing COVID-19 protective strategies and the foundations for long-term wellness.
The report provided recommendations about:
HOW to equitably design, resource, and implement CDC protections to prevent disease spread and lay foundations for long-term wellness.
WHAT public interventions need to take place in order to reduce the disparate impact and promote long-term population wellness.
