Leveraging Accountable Health Communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a spotlight on the interrelatedness between social needs and health. As the pandemic continues to disproportionately impact communities of color, and Black communities in particular, the relationship between race, health, and social determinants of health must drive all conversations about solutions to these disparities.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Camden Coalition’s team of Accountable Health Communities (AHC) screeners and navigators and our AHC program partners have continued their work. We have learned a lot since March 2020, perhaps more than we might have without the presence of a pandemic that disproportionately affected the people that the AHC program is meant to support.
