Welcome to the State of California 

Council on Multicultural Health Membership

The Council is composed of members from California's multiethnic communities with diverse professional backgrounds.  The Council's mission is to advise the Department of Health Care Services and the California Department of Public Health on improving access to quality health care and eliminating health disparities among California's diverse racial/ethnic communities. 

The Council on Multicultural Health is committed to:

  • assist the departments in developing culturally competent policies and programs and
