Long COVID Initiative Updates: November 17, 2021

Nov 17, 2021, 14:30 PM by Christen Fencl

AAPM&R will provide consistent updates on our advocacy outreach efforts, the Multi-Disciplinary PASC Collaborative and other relevant information on our Long COVID initiative.

AAPM&R's Advocacy Efforts Included in COVID Health Equity Task Force Report

On November 17, the Presidential COVID Health Equity Task Force released its final report and recommendations on mitigating health inequities caused by or exacerbated by COVID-19. As a result of many meetings we had with the Task Force over the past year, we are thrilled that the Task Force's report includes recommendations to address Long COVID, many of which are a direct result of our advocacy on how to best address the Long COVID crisis. There were several additional recommendations that aligned with our advocacy beyond Long COVID as well. 

Of the 55 priority recommendations, nearly 20 are directly aligned with our advocacy. These included recommendations such as "accept all patients and offer community resources at long COVID care centers," and "reducing barriers to testing, vaccinations and treatment" of COVID-19 and Long COVID.

We will be releasing more information on the thorough report in the upcoming days. View a comprehensive collection of our comments to the Health Equity Task Force.
