Advancing Health Literacy to Enhance Equitable Community Responses to COVID-19
This program will provide grants for demonstration projects of evidence-based health literacy strategies that are culturally appropriate to enhance COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and/or other mitigation measures in racial and ethnic minority populations and other socially vulnerable populations, including rural communities.
The program goals align with:
- Increase the proportion of adults whose healthcare provider checked their understanding
- Reduce the proportion of adults who report poor patient and provider communication
- Increase the proportion of adults whose healthcare providers involved them in decisions as much as they wanted
- Increase the proportion of people with vaccination records in an information system
