We are stronger when we work together.
With support and guidance from the CDC, Alianza Americas is leading an effort to address health disparities in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alianza Americas and its member organizations, together with the Latino Commission on AIDS and the Mexican side of the U.S.-Mexico Binational Health Commission Mobile Units, are implementing this ambitious initiative to keep our communities safe. We are working to improve health promotion and response activities with limited English proficiency (LEP) Latinx essential workers, their families and communities. We are developing culturally and linguistically tailored programs and practices for information sharing, testing, contact tracing, vaccination and healthcare strategies in response to health emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We keep each other safe!
Health is a top priority for all communities.
