Resource Summary: The Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), Health Outreach Partners (HOP), MHP Salud, and National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC), four HRSA-funded National Training and Technical Assistance Partner organizations, released a report on lessons learned, challenges, barriers, and impact stories shared from the (4) sessions of the “Screening Methods and Using Outreach and Enabling Services to Address Social Determinants of Health” Learning Collaborative. This Learning Collaborative explored effective strategies to screen for SDOH and build effective practices to address SDOH by providing outreach and enabling services for health centers serving Special and Vulnerable Populations.
Resource Details: Special and vulnerable populations (SVP)1,2 often face additional barriers to care, many of which are compounded by social determinants. When screening for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), health centers serving SVP will need to take into account the unique needs and circumstances of the
populations they serve, particularly during times of crisis (e.g., COVID-19 pandemic). Screening for SDOH is the first step towards addressing these disparities.
