This infographic presents the findings from Healthcare Ready’s most recent international poll (conducted in May 2018) on patient perspectives on the health system. The graphic reveals key pre-pandemic insights on how respondents in 13 countries around the world view as the greatest risks to their health (ranging from disease outbreaks to civil unrest) and how they interact with their country’s health systems.
The COVID-19 pandemic puts certain groups at a greater risk for severe illness and death. COVID-19 is especially harmful to the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Healthcare Ready aims to protect these populations now, and during all public health emergencies, as we know the risk is often far greater for them.
This infographic shows a few likely causes of the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black and Latinx communities. Black and Latinx people are testing positive and dying at higher rates from coronavirus. This pandemic is made worse by existing health and socioeconomic inequities, and in turn, it is worsening those disparities in Black and Latinx communities.
This infographic breaks down key features of resilient communities, in contrast with communities that lack resilient public health infrastructure. People of color usually fare worse in crises, like the COVID-19 pandemic, due to systemic inequities made worse by disasters. This graphic highlights the various ways we can harm or build resilience at the community level.
