California Wellness Plan, 2013
The publication provides a roadmap to prevent and control chronic disease and achieve health equity. CDPH’s aim is to provide leadership for governmental and non-governmental statewide partners to support the launch and implementation of the Plan. The objectives of the Plan are to reduce the number of Californians living with chronic disease, prevent new cases of chronic disease, and eliminate chronic disease disparities.
A variety of information sources informed the development of the draft California Wellness Plan, including the National Prevention Strategy; the National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care; the Health in All Policies Taskforce Recommendations; the Prevention Institute Spectrum of Prevention; the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, A New Way to Talk About Social Determinants of Health; the Let’s Get Healthy California Task Force Recommendations; and state plans of state-administered programs addressing specific chronic diseases and/or risk factors.
In addition, the draft document represents feedback received from both CDPH program staff and external stakeholders, and is grouped by goals, priorities, strategies, and short-term, intermediate, and long-term objectives.
Stakeholder Forums, July 2012 – February 2013
The stakeholder forums created an opportunity to leverage the expertise of multiple sectors representing local public health jurisdictions, academic institutions, voluntary and advocacy organizations, non-profit organizations, and partners outside public health.
In July 2012, an initial Stakeholder Meeting was conducted to collect preliminary input on the State Plan proposed goals and strategies.
Six virtual Regional Meetings were conducted in January 2013 online to share the State Plan proposed State Plan goals and strategies, to solicit input on strategies and indicators for measuring long-term outcomes, and to gain information about each organization’s activities in chronic disease prevention.
In February 2013 a meeting of Thought Leaders took place in Sacramento, California, in which the Regional Meeting Input was presented and further input on the goals and strategies was obtained.
The Regional Meetings resulted in valuable feedback to guide adjustment to the goals and strategies, and charged CDPH with aligning the Plan with other initiatives with complementary, long term objectives. Stakeholders acknowledged that transparent and ongoing communications is essential to implementing the Plan, and coordination in leveraging statewide communications campaigns is to reach the most Californians.
The California Wellness Plan which incorporates feedback from previous stakeholder meetings will be posted online to garner feedback from individuals and partner organizations.
