Central Valley Health Policy Institute
San Joaquin Valley Public Health Consortium: Report Series
The Central Valley Health Policy Institute (CVHPI) is currently working on a project
in collaboration with the San Joaquin Valley Public Health Consortium (SJVPHC) to
build capacity and support local health jurisdictions in responding to a changing
context and pursuing national accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board.
CVHPI with epidemiologists from each County will develop a series of reports that
investigates five major health outcomes that are prevalent issues the region faces
as a whole.
A specific model will be built for each health outcome in relation to a key public policy dimension based on previous research and theoretical frameworks. Across this set of reports, the relationship between the health outcome and the public policy factor will be examined in a standard model for all eight San Joaquin Valley counties.
The overall results and their implications for regional action will be summarized in a regional report, and each health outcome will also be examined in relation to a key policy issue.
