CCI is a vital source of ideas, best practices and funding for California’s health care safety net. Through our grantmaking, we have supported programs and ideas that are changing the game for patients, providers and organizations.
May 2017 / Social Determinants of Health
Safety net clinics have long played a role in addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH). The origins of this effort can be traced back to the pioneering work on community-oriented primary care developed over a generation ago. This work emerged in conjunction with the development of clinics in the U.S., and made strong links between clinical practice and community action. Today efforts to transform the healthcare system are increasingly moving beyond clinical walls to address the SDOH. This move has also broadened the focus from providing health care services to addressing overall health and equity of communities.
