COVID-19 and Hidden Housing Vulnerabilities: Implications for Health Equity, New Haven, Connecticut

Summary Description

COVID-19 has laid bare our connectedness, with early maps demonstrating its movement from person to person and com- munity to community. But over time, the maps have revealed a darker truth, exposing vast inequality and shameful rifts within societies, exemplified in the case of the United States. One such dimension of inequality impacting the pandemic is housing. Our research on housing as a social determinant of HIV risk reveals understudied and neglected housing vulner- abilities that may impact COVID-19 risk.
