On Thursday, the Presidential COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force presented two deliverables during their final public meeting. The first deliverable is the Final Report, which includes four overarching suggested outcomes as the Task Force vision for change, five proposed priority actions to spur this change and of course, 55 final recommendations intended to disrupt the predictability of who is harmed first and harmed worst in times of national crisis. This work was unanimously approved in the September 2021 Task Force meeting. While this is the final public meeting for the Task Force, the work is not done. To effect change and monitor progress to advance health equity for all, the Task Force presented a second deliverable which includes a proposed implementation plan and suggested accountability framework. This proposed plan and framework was discussed and voted upon as well.
As part of the release of the Final Report and proposed implementation plan, the Task Force will be hosting stakeholder briefings with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs and with the White House Office of Public Engagement.
