CVHPI is actively working with the Consortium to provide research and policy expertise.

San Joaquin counties CVHPI works with are: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Kern, Kings, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare.

Mission: Provide leadership for a regional health agenda that addresses the social determinants of health in the San Joaquin Valley.

Vision: Achieve health equity for all residents in the San Joaquin Valley.

Purpose: The Consortium engages in strategic planning, training, action oriented policy development and research to improve the quality and responsiveness of public health programs in the Central California region. The Consortium is a forum for County Public Health Directors, Deputy and Assistant Directors, Health Officers, and invited associate members to explore and exchange ideas and information and to develop strategies for addressing pressing public health issues faced by the counties and the region.
