Covid-19 Response

Afghan Coalition, through representation by Rona Popal, AC Executive Director, serves on the Alameda County COVID-19 Vaccine Community Advisory Group. Afghan Coalition provided education workshops and translation of written information for dissemination to the community on COVID-19 and the vaccines.

Afghan Coalition partnered with Bay Area Community Health (BACH) in carrying out targeted a Covid-19 response in Alameda County. Five Contact Tracers speaking 4 different languages reached Covid-19 positive individuals throughout Alameda County to provide information and resources. The project was implemented from October 2020 through April 2022.

A new project, Community Resilience, again in partnership with Bay Area Community Health and Alameda County, was created to provide resources and Covid-19 information to priority populations.
