While several lifesaving COVID-19 antiviral treatments are now widely available, many community-based organizations supporting pandemic efforts are struggling to ensure the most impacted and at-risk people have information about and access to these treatments. Federal programs such as the Test to Treat Initiative are working to equitably distribute treatments, but local organizations and health workforces need to know how such programs would work in their communities.

During this interactive webinar, community-based organizations, workforces, and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs):

  • Received the latest information and resources available on COVID-19 antivirals and the Test to Treat initiative;
  • Learned about clinical/community organization partnerships and how we can make it easier for individuals to access treatment and information;
  • Shared feedback to senior officials on the CDC and White House COVID-19 response teams on the biggest barriers your communities face in accessing these treatments; and
  • Discussed recommendations to make the oral antiviral program more equitable and effective.
