"United in Health"

Latinos today are disproportionally suffering from highest rates of infection within San Francisco (29% of cases vs 15% of demographic). The Latino Task Force for COVID-19 - a series of community groups within the Latino Cultural District of San Francisco has formed a partnership with UCSF Medical School to research and combat the disproportionate infection within the Latino community. The partnership is named Unidos en Salud. 


Unidos En Salud (United in Health) is a partnership between UCSF infectious disease researchers and the Latino Task Force applying the same pandemic response from the AIDS epidemic to COVID-19 - prioritizing equity through community outreach. Spanish speaking Unidos En Salud volunteers who knock on doors outreaching within their own community play the key role in access - providing COVID-19 information, registration to free low barrier testing, and community resources (healthcare, housing, employment..etc).
