Hispanic/Latinx public health advocates, public health experts, and community-based organizations came together to form the “Setting our Agenda Coalition.” The Hispanic/Latinx NYS leaders have recognized the importance of coming together under the theme “Our Health. Our Future” to address the health challenges the diverse Hispanic/Latinx communities in NYS face.
Hispanic/Latinx New Yorkers experience the disproportionate impact of a variety of health conditions such as HIV, viral hepatitis, STIs, MPV, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory illnesses, cancer, substance use disorders, and trauma. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted our communities and exacerbated pre-existing racial and ethnic health disparities.
