Initiative: COVID Positives Coalition
To ensure people-centric services for those infected or affected by COVID-19, especially marginalized communities, the COVID Action Collaborative (CAC) created the COVID Positives Coalition. Led by COVID-19 affected individuals and supported by local NGOs, the COVID Positives Coalition aims to:
- Reduce stigma around COVID-19
- Ensure better quality of care for COVID-19 affected
- Improve response and recovery policies, shaped by COVID-19 affected individuals
The Coalition is being piloted in two locations in India, Karnataka and Hyderabad, and aims to scale nationally by creating local champions and leveraging learnings from the pilot.
