Increasing Access to COVID-19 Testing and Treatment in PA: Lessons Learned from PHLP’s Outreach & Community Navigators

PHLP released a final report to share their experiences, lessons learned, and recommendations going forward in the hopes that others can build upon their work and continue to advocate for equitable access to COVID-19 testing and treatment.
