The Having Our Say coalition examines some of the national health reform policies that have the most impact on our communities, highlighting proposals that expand access to care, eliminate health disparities, and promote primary prevention. We also discuss the impact an individual mandate would have on our communities.

In March 2008, Having Our Say coalition members came together to debrief about the 2007 health care reform efforts, including the coalition's accomplishments and lessons learned. The group worked to develop a policy agenda for 2008 that would build towards comprehensive coverage.

This report ranks cities and counties throughout California using key factors known to influence health, including income, chronic diseases, health insurance status, and access to open space for physical activity. The results of this analysis have been used to create a visual map for where to focus public health resources and efforts. The brief offers recommendations to help policymakers, public health experts, and community leaders incorporate health considerations in land-use and transportation planning.

This report highlights how the three statewide health care reform proposals introduced in the 2007 legislative session would have impacted communities of color. In addition to outlining the demographics of the newly insured, the report includes our recommendations to ensure that our future health cares system is prepared to serve California ’s diverse communities. 

This report from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research shows that job-based health insurance coverage -- the backbone of the state's system of health insurance – continues to decline.

Funded by the California Program on Access to Care, this study explores the role of race/ethnicity and language in access to, and experience of, care among adult Californians enrolled in the state's seven major health plans.

In 2004, CPEHN held convenings in Los Angeles and Oakland to discuss strategies for eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. At the meetings, participants suggested that CPEHN develop a set of principles to guide efforts to address the systemic injustices and inequities that impact the health communities of color. This document stems from those discussions.

These guiding principles represent the core areas of agreement among CPEHN's multicultural partners and the primary values of our organizations. These principles are used to evaluate various health care reform proposals to ensure that the needs of communities of color are met.
