Health Issue Areas

Our strategic health issue areas were revised to better reflect LCHC’s historically strong racial justice & health equity lens, in addition to the current and future work to meet our mission & vision:

Health Care Access: “Access to health care for all” – Increase access to individuals to affordable, high quality, and culturally and linguistically appropriate health care—covering oral and mental health care—for all.

Social Determinants of Health: “Building healthy communities” – Build social, economic, and physical environments for communities that prevent chronic diseases and promote health and wellness.

Health & Human Rights: “Health is a fundamental right of every human being” – Reduce structural and institutional barriers that produce health inequities across race/ethnicity, gender and/or sexual orientation, disability status, and immigration status.
