COVID-19 Public Health Response and Preparedness

Public Health at Risk

The novel coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most urgent public health crises of the last century; we need to act now to understand critical issues concerning infection, transmission, containment and mitigation of this severe and deadly virus. The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health has been at the forefront providing accurate information to the public and advising the experts.

We are all at risk and we need clear, science-based data on how COVID-19 is affecting and will affect all of our communities in greater Los Angeles, especially those who are most vulnerable among us including older adults, individuals with compromised immune systems (e.g. those in treatment for cancer and autoimmune disorders), and members of our community who lack access to quality health care.

 

How You Can Help

For public health professionals, this pandemic represents not only a call to duty, but also a historic opportunity to creatively and courageously reimagine the way we respond to public health emergencies in Los Angeles and around the world. We need your partnership to make this possible.
