Cultivating Community Health in Southern California
This new report highlights a 'snapshot' of a wide range of Community Health investments, initiatives, and partnerships.
We recognize that the conditions in our communities—social, economic, environmental, equity, inclusion, justice—have a profound and pervasive impact on the health of the people who live, work, and play in them. That’s why we are leveraging our assets and collaborating with community partners to help communities thrive beyond health care, address climate change, and improve housing, food security, economic opportunity, and education.
We believe that addressing the upstream influencers of health and equity in our communities will yield long-term improvement in downstream health status and affordability of care. This Community Health report is one snapshot of a broad portfolio of initiatives and numerous collaborations. We are grateful to our many community partners, and we are grateful to the people of Kaiser Permanente who join in common purpose to make lives better and improve the health of the communities we serve.
