The NYC Pandemic Response Institute (PRI), led by ICAP at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health with key partner CUNY School of Public Health, is a first-of-its-kind entity that connects and convenes individuals and organizations from government, academia, corporate, social, cultural, community and other sectors. We leverage this cross-sector collaboration and creativity to understand, prepare for and tackle emergent public health threats, from environmental catastrophes to infectious disease outbreaks. Racial Equity & Social Determinants of Health (RESDH) Cross-Cutting Team: Public health researchers and practitioners are increasingly focused on structural and resulting social determinants of health (SDH). Specifically, understanding how SDH, including structural racism, influences lived experience, how the body responds to social stress, how place affects health, and how to better translate the science of SDH to improve health equity. The Racial Equity & Social Determinants of Health Team, which brings together medical sociologists, historians, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and behavioral scientists at MSPH, CUNY-SPH, leverages structural and social determinants of health theory to integrate an explicit focus on racial equity into PRI's structures, operations, and interventions. Combining methods and theory from the social and behavioral sciences with data on racial and geographic disparities in outcomes of COVID-19 and other recent public health emergencies in NYC, the PRI will seek to distinguish pathways through which structural racism and related intersectional forms of structural oppression (sexism, xenophobia, etc.) have led to worse outcomes for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other people of color. Examples of pathways through which these barriers shape health in NYC include employment discrimination, psychosocial trauma, residential segregation, disenfranchisement, and stereotyping. PRI's RESDH will ensure that program and policy interventions these structural and social determinants. The multidisciplinary group members will bring their expertise to inform the work of all the PRI technical groups to ensure that epidemiological and modelling efforts, innovations and scale-up as well as data collection, analysis and dissemination are shaped by a critical perspective on racial equity and social determinants of health.
