Santa Clara County Children’s Health Assessment

On April 7, 2015, Supervisor Cortese, President of the Board of Supervisor, directed the Health & Hospital Administration to conduct an assessment of the Health of Children in Santa Clara County.  

The goal of the assessment is to provide a countywide profile of behavioral health, preventive health and medical health status of children in Santa Clara County with a focus on the racial/ethnic disparities. The report can serve as a valuable tool for policy makers, foundations, non- profits, researchers, elected officials, and government agencies that want a better understanding of the health of this important population. Special studies focused on the health of children in our county reinforce the vision of "Better Health for All”, because information can be used to select the most salient priority areas and work with stakeholders to improve the health of children in Santa Clara County.
