about us

Our Mission

It is our mission to dramatically reduce the number of coronavirus infections in high-risk communities.

The Coalition to Advance Coronavirus Testing is a public-private, non-partisan coalition, managed by National Minority Quality Forum, to serve as a national coordinating body working to:
  • Ensure the availability of testing supplies for providers serving minority and rural communities
  • Communicate to high-risk communities the importance of being tested, and to be a trusted conveyor of culturally-sensitive information about living safely during the pandemic
  • Facilitate in-community testing
  • Standardize data collection to support public health and clinical research on vulnerable populations
  • Share best practices to reduce exposure to the virus and lower mortality rates in rural and communities of color
  • Ensure diversity in coronavirus clinical trials to include representatives from underserved communities
