The Office of Policy and Planning (OPP) advances transformative policy and systems change for state and community health improvement through prevention, equity, and collective action. The OPP promotes public health policy priorities and supports CDPH capabilities for community health improvement, policy development, research and analysis, integrated planning, decision intelligence, lean transformation, continuous improvement, trauma-responsive practice, academic partnership, operations, and public health infrastructure.
We do this by:
Conducting comprehensive assessments and long-term strategic and health improvement planning to address current and emerging cross-cutting public health and equity priorities.
Leading policy analysis, monitoring, and outcomes evaluation.
Facilitating supporting progress to build and enhance community health investment and public health infrastructure.
Cultivating partnerships with local health jurisdictions, health systems, academic partners, government agencies, and community partners.
Strengthening CDPH organizational capacity through continuous improvement initiatives, decision intelligence principles, and creating a trauma responsive culture.
