California Health​​y Brain Initiative Projects 2022–25

​The purpose of the California Healthy Brain Initiative (HBI) is to advance cognitive health as an integral component of public health. The State of California supports activities that are consistent with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s published Healthy Brain Initiative: State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia, 2023–27 Road Map (PDF, 20.4 MB)​ (Road Map), which is  categorized into four traditional domains of public health:

  1. ​Monitoring data and evaluating programs to contribute to evidence-based practice.

  2. Education and empowerment of the public with regard to brain health and cognitive aging.

  3. Mobilizing public and private partnerships to engage local stakeholders in effective community-based interventions and best practices.

  4. Ensuring a competent workforce by strengthening the knowledge, skills, and abilities of health care professionals who deliver care and services to people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their family caregivers.

​Through 2022 Budget Act (Assembly Bill 179, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2022), CDPH Chronic Disease Control Branch Alzheimer’s Disease Program (ADP) has funded thirteen (13) local health jurisdictions (LHJs) to implement HBI Road Map activities locally. Their work incorporates the following fundamental planning principles: eliminating health disparities, improving health equity, collaborating across multiple sectors, and leveraging public and private resources for sustained impact. Currently funded HBI LHJs include:
