Covid-19 Message From the Network

We Welcome Your Stories.

In our continued work to elevate cross-sector solutions and examples of success addressing SDOH and health equity, we welcome your stories, innovative policies and practices, and learnings that we can share with our broader network.

 

Dear Colleagues,

Our thanks to all of you on the front lines working in your communities during this unprecedented time. In our role as a connector, curator, and virtual convenor across community development and health, we are here to support your work across sectors—both as you navigate the immediate needs your organization is facing as you address COVID-19 and as you plan for long term response and recovery.

We know that current events are having particular impact on historically marginalized low income communities, the same communities that suffer the health consequences of negative social determinants of health (SDOH). Social determinants fundamentally impact the ability of all communities to respond to public health guidelines such as those seen in crises like COVID-19; these are health justice issues.

In our continued work to elevate cross-sector solutions and examples of success addressing SDOH and health equity, we welcome your stories, innovative policies and practices, and learnings that we can share with our broader network. Please feel free to tell us what is working in your community or for your organization as you respond to COVID-19 by emailing Renae at rbadruzzaman@buildhealthyplaces.org.

Thank you for your efforts and partnership. We look forward to hearing from you.

Be well,

The BHPN team
