Health departments and communities working together
It is evident that the transformation of public health is under way to a collaborative, multi-sector, public-private enterprise that is prepared to address health equity and the social and environmental factors that underlie health status. As more lessons and models surface about community-collaborative public health in California, the legacy of the Partnership for the Public's Health Initiative grows.
