Using the Minority Health Social Vulnerability Index to Drive Equitable Public Health Efforts
Posted on August 3, 2021 by Rebecca Mak, Policy Intern, HHS Office of Minority Health
During times of public health crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, racial and ethnic minority groups disproportionately experience adverse outcomes like high hospitalization and mortality rates as a result of a variety of factors, including social determinants of health (SDOH). , Examples of SDOH include healthcare access and quality, education, racism and discrimination, economic stability, housing, and environmental conditions. Identifying and understanding the most vulnerable communities are crucial steps for planning effective, tailored response and recovery efforts that take these factors into account.
