Healthy, Safe and Thriving Communities in San Diego County
In 2010, after two years of collaborative planning sessions among https://www.breastfeeding.org/community/live-well-san-diego/live-well-logo/County staff and community stakeholders, the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors adopted a comprehensive, long-term initiative on health called Building Better Health: Health Strategy Agenda. The decision was sparked by the realization that San Diego County, like much of the nation, was facing a tidal wave of chronic disease and rising healthcare costs. Our Board knew that without taking bold, deliberate action, the next generation of San Diegans would be in danger of living shorter, less healthy lives than the current generation.
The original Building Better Health: Health Strategy Agenda has since evolved into the greater Live Well San Diego vision of a region that is Building Better Health, Living Safely and Thriving.
