- Health Disparities and Health Equity During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Facts vs. Fiction
- Health Equity in the Midst of Covid-19: Seven Key Issues Impacting Lower Socioeconomic, Black Communities and Potential Solutions
The existing global pandemic has created new terminology/concepts, new realities and fear across the globe. Social distancing is a new concept, along with other suggested and required actions, which most people are not accustomed to. The reality of having to be at least 6 feet away from another human is challenging and posing concerns for many. Nevertheless, beyond the above, there are some key issues relevant to lower socioeconomic status that are pertinent to discuss. Recently, the Congressional Black Caucus stated the following in a press release: “When America catches a cold, Black America catches pneumonia.” This is an indication that any problems that impact mainstream America, health-wise, due to the widening health status gap known as health disparities, bear a greater impact on Black people, especially those who are poor. Below are a list of issues that provide further insight, particularly in the current public health crisis. Clearly, we are in the midst of a pandemic so the actual pathogen, does not discriminate. But, the healthcare “system” in the United States must be proactive regarding how to approach this issue, taking factors associated with health disparities, relevant to racial and ethnic emerging majorities, into consideration, as outlined in Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Contexts, Controversies and Solutions.
