Equity in Action Dashboard

PPE Partnerships

Virginia’s Health Equity Leadership Taskforce is using a novel data-driven approach to apply a health equity lens to every part of the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 response. The Taskforce is putting equity into action through state and local partnerships, initiating pilots to provide masks, hand sanitizer, and health education materials to communities most in need. This dashboard includes information on how the Health Equity Leadership Taskforce has distributed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to communities of color, low-income communities, and areas with elevated health risk. Click on the button below the logo on the side panel for more information about the Health Equity Leadership Taskforce’s COVID-19 response.

Usability and Accessibility: Use the navigation buttons at the top of the page to access the dashboard and information for each topic area. The dashboards include text captions for charts and tables that are accessible to screen readers. For each chart or table, you can also access the underlying data by clicking on the link(s) in the Data and Documentation section.
