A Pathway to Rapidly Cutting COVID-19 Deaths Through a Risk-Based Vaccination Strategy
Researchers are working to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, but any potential vaccine will at first be in limited supply. Who should we prioritize? New data from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in partnership with PolicyMap, identifies populations across the US at highest risk of death. The COVID-19 Mortality Risk Calculator and COVID-19 Risk Maps reveal individual and community risk levels.
PolicyMap Contributes to Healthy and Equitable Community Investment
With the goal of moving toward a more equity-focused, data-informed, and community responsive approach to community investment, the Healthy and Equitable Community Investment (HECI) work group convened a group of stakeholders, including PolicyMap, to better understand existing tools and health equity measurement practices.
New Jersey Health Initiatives provides PolicyMap to ten community teams in the State of New Jersey to help them visualize, analyze and share housing, education, workforce and demographic data to inform their work.
