Information Campaigns, Mandates Produce Some Good News - California Health Care Foundation

CA Mandates produce good news! Including the fact that some California counties have “made dramatic strides” among Latinx people, reducing racial and ethnic disparities in vaccination rates, Santa Clara County, for instance, has nearly eliminated the disparity between Latinx and White people, with about 72% of each group having had at least one dose of the vaccine.
#HealthEquity #TrustVaccines

Public health leaders have been encouraged by increased acceptance of COVID-19 shots in communities that were lagging state and national vaccination rates.

Our Story

The Alameda Health Consortium was founded in the early 1970s as a nonprofit organization to advocate for and support community-based health centers in Alameda County. Community health centers rose in the 1960s and 1970s as part of a national movement to address the health care needs of low-income communities that were not being met by the mainstream health care system.

Since our founding, we have grown as a regional association of eight community-based, private, nonprofit federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). Together, our member health centers operate more than 95 clinic locations that serve more than 270,000 people.

Our member health centers formed the Community Health Center Network (CHCN) in 1996 to participate more effectively in newly-launched state managed care programs. The formation of CHCN was built upon over 20 years of collaboration in health policy and advocacy work through the Alameda Health Consortium. Together, we’re both committed to excellent, affordable care for underserved communities of the East Bay.

Hi Alamedans, I am sincerely asking you all to consider donating to support my father who has been recently diagnosed with GBS. The acute onset of his GBS was especially debilitating, and is causing him great financial stress as he happened to be unemployed at the time. He needs a lot of help getting by with bills, rent, etc. until his recovery as his job search has to cease until then. He is an amazing, loving father, friend and beloved professional in the Development field. If you can’t donate, please please please share this link wherever you can – social media, friends, family. Your help is so so so appreciated!!!
