Latino Coalition for a Healthy California

Latino Coalition for a Healthy California (LCHC)—the only statewide organization with a specific emphasis on Latino health—was founded in 1992 by health care providers, consumers and advocates to impact Latino health by focusing on policy development and community involvement. LCHC works to address inequities in quality of health care; build advocacy for high quality, culturally relevant, and linguistically appropriate health care and prevention services; inform the public to make choices that favor better health outcomes; and empower communities to fully participate in health planning, implementation, evaluation, and advocacy. LCHC works in four key strategic areas: chronic disease prevention, safe and vibrant communities, health care access, and just immigration reform, and relies on public policy and advocacy, community education, and health equity research to advance community health.
