Health Services: a critical need

Health services, often enabled by technology, play a key role in mitigating the individual and community level effects of the virus. Resources such as symptom trackers, mental health services, and information on how to prevent illness or take care of yourself at home are critically important to individuals’ ability to navigate the pandemic and seek appropriate care. We are working with health services, health tech, and digital health partners to make these and other resources affordable and available to underserved communities in order to improve the health outcomes of those most vulnerable to COVID.
