The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted some refugee, immigrant, and migrant communities (RIM) in the US. Organizations serving RIM communities across the US responded in innovative ways to address health disparities created and/or worsened by the pandemic. Through work with our partners and over 125 qualitative interviews with public health professionals, health care providers, and community leaders, NRC-RIM identified over 80 promising practices - strategies, approaches, or programs that have anecdotally shown to have a positive impact in local settings.

The promising practices featured below are especially relevant beyond COVID-19. This collection is intended to highlight culturally appropriate programs and to inspire other organizations to consider similar approaches. This collection can also serve as a source of ideas for future funding applications. The full collection of promising practices can be found by exploring our toolkits.
