We believe that the health of Angelenos begins with access to resources beyond health care. Communities in Los Angeles County facing economic hardship in terms of housing, unemployment, income and education are also the communities with the greatest health needs and lack of access to health services. The health area will continue to support the safety net of clinics and hospitals serving low-income and uninsured Angelenos and will also address the root causes of poor health through core operating support grants.
To achieve these goals, we focus on several key strategies:
- Increasing integration of medical, dental, vision, mental health and substance use prevention, care and treatment services
- Facilitating cross-sector and regional systems collaboration among L.A. County public sector partners, nonprofit hospital/health systems, other nonprofits, and community partners to address the root causes of racial/ethnic health disparities including but not limited to immigration status.
- Supporting health policy/advocacy efforts that promote universal access to and utilization of health coverage, services and other public benefits
