COVID-19 Survivor Impact Briefs: Immigrant and Limited English Proficient Communities   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "Immigrants and Limited English Proficient individuals are being affected by COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in many ways. We at the National Latino Network for Healthy Families and Communities (NLN) and our friends at the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender Based Violence (APIGBV) are seeing communities infected and experiencing severe illness with no access to medical care or be the targets of hate crimes. Some are being left out by the lack of language access in medical settings, and families are being left out of financial support and access to resources due to immigration status. Others are targets of heightened fraudulent activity, while others are being told to seek advice from primary care doctors that do not exist for them. The impact is not the same for immigrants and individual with limited English proficiency, and the access to resources is not equal. This brief explores some of those needs and creative solutions shared during listening sessions, strategy sessions, and conversations with survivors."
