RAND research and expertise can inform immediate policy responses to address the disastrous effects of COVID-19—and help aid in recovery long after the disease stops spreading.
While we all have been affected in some way by the COVID-19 crisis, the pandemic has exposed fissures in our communities, including significant social and systemic inequities. In this briefing, Anita Chandra discusses RAND’s efforts to understand COVID-19’s toll on particularly vulnerable populations. She talks about the short- and long-term impacts of today’s policy choices on economic and health equity, as well as ways RAND research can help decisionmakers strengthen communities for a post-COVID-19 future.
