Community Partners

The Health District’s Health Equity program is grateful to work alongside community organizations to support communities most impacted by COVID-19 and other health inequities. Our partners work diligently to provide services, education, and other resources to a multitude of populations in Southern Nevada, including:

  • Hispanic/Latinx
  • Black/African American
  • Asian/Pacific Islander
  • People experiencing homelessness
  • LGBTQ community
  • Members of Islamic community
  • Immigrants and refugees
  • Seniors 65+
  • Low to moderate income households
  • Medically underserved
  • People with disabilities

Our partners are well vested in the communities they serve and are trusted to be a resource for underserved populations. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has been the concentration of our collaboration; providing education, testing opportunities, and improving vaccine equity, the collective goals of our partnerships are focused on increasing overall access to health and closing the gap between health disparities and those underserved populations.
