The Alameda County Public Health Department operates under the model that social inequities produce health inequities and maintains that illness is concentrated among low-income and people of color residing in particular geographic places. The framework employs a three-pronged approach and includes: institutional change, community capacity building, and policy change. Through their program Building Social and Health Equity, the health department aims to change the way they conduct public health practice and integrate more equitable systems, policies, procedures, and practices into their daily activities.
