Much Needed Medicine: A Qualitative Study of Hawai‘i Resident Views During COVID-19

Hawai‘i Journal of Health & Social Welfare -- October 2021

The precarious financial status of the majority of Hawai‘i residents coupled with the state’s heavy reliance on tourism suggests that residents are particularly vulnerable to increased economic hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, which temporarily shut down the tourism industry and continues to erect barriers for resuming operations. Understanding how Hawai‘i residents prioritize access to health care, food economics, care of ‘āina, and culturally informed community in light of the current and future economic situation can inform policy actions that will support public health.

The Complementary Roles of Financial Assistance and Social Services for Vulnerable Populations

As Liliʻuokalani Trust (LT) shifts to implement the directions and activities identified for the years 2020-2025 in its updated strategic plan, striking an appropriate balance between use of resources for direct services and for financial assistance is an important topic.

Between March and August 2020, substantial funds were directed to “emergency financial stabilization” and some prior constraints on financial assistance were temporarily lifted to provide kamaliʻi and their ʻohana with relatively small, one-time awards to help offset the immediate impacts of the contraction of the Hawaiʻi economy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As we move forward, the question about the role of financial assistance in LT’s toolkit for supporting ʻohana is highly relevant.  The LT Research, Evaluation, and Strategy team was asked to look at evidence about the relative efficacy of financial assistance compared to social services.
