ABSTRACT

Sentinel Communities Insights: 'Collaboration in Communities to Address COVID-19' Continuing Themes Across Communities   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "In July 2020, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) released the first set of reports [hyperlink] in the Sentinel Communities: Spotlight on COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] project. Those reports summarized the early impacts of the pandemic in nine communities around the United States, and included a synthesis report that documented emerging themes around the communities' responses to these challenges. In this second synthesis report, we take a deeper look at how cross-sector collaboration [hyperlink] is contributing to ongoing response and recovery efforts. Improving overall health and well-being within any community requires creative solutions driven by collaboration across sectors. Trajectories of community response and recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic can be shaped by how well individuals and public and private institutions work together within communities. Successful cross-sector collaboration encourages people to see the connections between their work-- whether in health care, education, transportation, community development, law enforcement, business, or other fields--and the broader health and well-being of their community. This set of reports summarizes how elements of cross-sector collaboration--such as sharing data or investments, developing mutually beneficial policies, or forming innovative partnerships--have shaped each community's response to the pandemic."
