This case study explores how multisector partnerships offer cost-effective, long-term solutions to uncoordinated approaches to clinical and social needs and help communities ensure a swift and equitable pandemic recovery.
- Effective multisector partnerships are:
- Built by and for communities
- Accountable to those they serve
- Often led by intermediary organizations
- Promoting health and economic equity
- Built to last
The Georgia Health Policy Center, in partnership with the School of Public Health at George Washington University and with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is identifying, synthesizing, and disseminating cross-sector policy and implementation opportunities that facilitate recovery from the triple crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic, impacts of the 2020 economic downturn, and the ongoing impact of structural racism. The work – Aligning in Crisis — builds on Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services.
