Equitable housing is key to health
Stable, safe, and affordable housing is critical to health. But across the state of California, more and more people are being displaced, particularly low income communities and communities of color. In this episode of Moving Upstream, Prevention Institute’s Associate Program Director Sandra Viera interviews leaders from California’s Central Orange County, High Desert, Sonoma, and Eureka communities who seek to improve health through equitable housing policy as part of the Intersections Initiative. Intersections brings together coalitions that include healthcare in seven California communities. These coalitions are working to achieve health equity through strategies that emphasize elevating resident voices, working across issue areas, and strengthening policies and practices. This work is made possible by the St. Joseph Health Community Partnership Fund.
