Prevention

Prevention

Find out how social and environmental factors lead to disparities and how we can address these to create healthy places for Californians to live, work, and learn.

Our physical and social environments often have a direct and profound effect on our health, determining everything from the availability of healthy foods and safe parks to the quality of the air we breathe. We advance prevention efforts through a “health in all policies” approach so that health is considered in all policy decisions.

PREVENTION AND THE ACA
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) prioritizes prevention through funding and other key provisions that will result in better health outcomes for Californians.

HEALTH IN ALL POLICIES
“Health in all policies” is a proactive approach to decision making that incorporates health considerations across all policy areas.
