Puerto Ricans and COVID-19


Research Agenda:

This Working Group is using an interdisciplinary perspective in understanding and examining the Puerto Rican population on the island and on the U.S. mainland in the midst of COVID-19. Puerto Ricans have been gravely affected by the debt crisis, exclusion from the full benefits of federal programs, and lackluster responses to major disasters. These have significant effects on the health and well-being of the population.
