Siemens Foundation Donates $330,000 to National Alliance for Hispanic Health to Support COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution Effort

Siemens Foundation Donates $330,000 to National Alliance for Hispanic Health to Support COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution Efforts

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Alliance for Hispanic Health (the Alliance) today announced it is receiving $330,000 from the Siemens Foundation to advance vaccine distribution and adoption in the Hispanic community. With this COVID-19 vaccination grant, the Alliance will enhance the efforts of local Hispanic communities as they work to overcome barriers to COVID-19 vaccination access.

"In the Hispanic community a major issue is access to the COVID-19. The funding from Siemens will allow for solutions from bringing vaccines to work sites to making vaccines available in community settings and at times that people can access before and after work. This is critical for Hispanics who represent a significant part of the essential worker workforce," said Jane L. Delgado, PhD, MS, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health.

"Communities continue to be disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, and the work of the Alliance is critical to advancing health equity through vaccine distribution," said David Etzwiler, CEO of Siemens Foundation. "We are incredibly grateful to work with the Alliance and their network to support them in their mission."

Aligning with its commitment to advance health equity, this donation is part of a larger national effort by the Siemens Foundation to provide $1.4 million, including funding from the Siemens Healthineers fund of the Siemens Foundation, to five non-profit organizations across the country that provide direct outreach in Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous communities most impacted by COVID-19.
