Health Equity Principles for State and Local Leaders in Responding to, Reopening and Recovering from COVID-19

May 28, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

To help state and local leaders with their reopening and recovery efforts, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released five principles as a compass to point leaders to an equitable and lasting recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. Collect, analyze and report disaggregated data,
  2. Include those who are most affected in decisions, and benchmark progress,
  3. Establish and empower teams dedicated to racial equity,
  4. Proactively fill policy gaps while advocating for more federal support,
  5. Invest in public health, health care and social infrastructure.

These principles can guide our nation toward an equitable response and recovery and help sow the seeds of long-term, transformative change. States and cities have begun imagining and, in some cases, advancing toward this vision, putting a down payment on a fair and just future in which health equity is a reality. Returning to the ways things were is not an option.
