RECOVER Project, Understanding and Treating Long-Term Effects of COVID

Posted by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) on August 23, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of community engagement and health equity as central in our efforts to mitigate the further spread, and health inequities have emerged as critical areas of focus.  In response, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) serves as the engagement lead in multiple National Institutes of Health COVID-19 projects.  These include testing (RADx-UP) and vaccination (NNICE, NC CEAL), and most recently, RECOVER.  RECOVER is focused on better understanding and treating the long-term effects of COVID.

We are in the initial phases of our work with RECOVER and seek to engage organizational representatives and community leaders as key partners.  It is critical that this work includes a careful understanding of the impact of long COVID in communities, especially those disproportionately affected by COVID-19.

More about the RECOVER Initiative 

In February 2021, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched RECOVER to address the long-term effects of the SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19.  This national research effort brings together scientists, clinicians, patients, caregivers and community members and other partners to identify the causes for and means to prevent and treat post-COVID conditions and symptoms, including what is commonly called long COVID or long-haul COVID.
