California Legislature—2015–16 Regular Session

Assembly BillNo. 2424

Introduced by Assembly Member Gomez

February 19, 2016

An act to add Part 8 (commencing with Section 106050) to Division 103 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to public health.


AB 2424, as amended, Gomez. Community-based Health Improvement and Innovation Fund.

Existing law establishes the State Department of Public Health, within the California Health and Human Services Agency, vested with certain duties, powers, functions, jurisdiction, and responsibilities over specified public health programs.

This bill, among other things, would create the Community-based Health Improvement and Innovation Fund in the State Treasury, and the moneys in the fund would be available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for certain purposes, including, but not limited to, reducing health inequity and disparities in the rates and outcomes of priority chronic health conditions, as defined, preventing the onset of priority chronic health conditions using community-based strategies in communities statewide and with particular focus on health equity priority populations, as defined, and strengthening local, regional, and state level collaborations between public health jurisdictions and health care providers, and across government agencies and community partners to create healthier communities, using a health-in-all-policies approach. The department would be required to use a specified percentage of moneys from the fund for certain public health and administrative activities and would be required to award a specified percentage of moneys from the fund to local health jurisdictions and as competitive grants to eligible applicants to be used to improve health and health equity, as provided.

This bill would create the 13-member Community-based Health Improvement and Innovation Fund Advisory Committee to, among other things, advise the department with respect to policy development, integration, and evaluation of community-based chronic disease and injury prevention activities funded under these provisions, and for development of a master plan of recommendations and proposed strategies for the future implementation of those activities. The bill would require the advisory committee, based on the results of programs supported by these provisions, to produce a comprehensive set of recommendations and proposed strategies for advancing chronic disease and injury prevention throughout the state, to include implementation strategies in the recommendations for each priority chronic health condition throughout the state and identification of areas where innovative solutions are especially needed, and to submit the recommendations and proposed strategies to the Legislature triennially.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: no.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

4PART 8.  Community-based Health Improvement
5and Innovation Fund





The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:

8(a) Over the past century, chronic diseases have emerged as a
9predominant challenge to public health. Chronic disease and injury
10account for eight of every 10 deaths andbegin delete affectsend deletebegin insert affectend insert the quality
11of life of 14 million Californians.

P3    1(b) Obesity and diabetes in particular have grown rapidly, posing
2a grave threat to health. Today over one-half of California adults
3are estimated to have either diabetes or prediabetes. Thirteen
4million adults in California, 46 percent of the adult population, are
5estimated to have prediabetes or undiagnosed diabetes, while
6another 2.5 million adults, 9 percent of the adult population, have
7already been diagnosed with diabetes.

8(c) The health inequities in this state are stark:

9(1) Ethnic minorities and individuals who have low incomes
10have higher rates of diabetes. Nearlybegin delete one-in-fiveend deletebegin insert 1 in 5end insert African
11Americans and Latinos in California have diabetes, more than
12double the rate of Whites.

13(2) Nearly 12 years of life separate the life expectancy at the
14top and at the bottom of neighborhood clusters in California, from
15a life expectancy of 87 years in parts of northwest Santa Clara
16County to 75.3 years in the City of Twentynine Palms and the City
17of Barstow in the County of San Bernardino.

18(3) Economically disadvantaged children are far less likely to
19complete the fitness requirements of the physical fitness test offered
20to students in grade school.

21(4) Adolescents covered by Medi-Cal reported significantly
22higher rates of drinking sugar-sweetened beverages and less daily
23consumption of vegetables than the general California adolescent
24population and were significantly more likely to be obese.

25(d) The following short list of risk factors is responsible for
26much of the burden of chronic disease: tobacco use, physical
27inactivity, unhealthful diet, excessive consumption of alcohol,
28hyperlipidemia, and uncontrolled high blood pressure. These risk
29factors and chronic conditions are largely preventable, inequitably
30distributed, and significantly influenced by the social determinants
31of health.

32(e) The State Department of Public Health estimates that as
33much as 80 percent of heart disease, stroke, and type II diabetes
34and more than 30 percent of cancers can be prevented by
35eliminating the underlying risk factors.

36(f) The economic burden of chronic disease in California weighs
37heavily on families, employers, and all levels of government.
38Approximately $98 billion, or 42 percent of all health care
39expenditures in the state, was spent on treating just six common
P4    1chronic health conditions (arthritis, asthma, cardiovascular disease,
2diabetes, cancer, and depression) in 2010.

3(g) The indirect costs associated with chronic disease in
4California are also high. According to the Economic Burden of
5Chronic Disease (EBCD) Index, the projected impact of lower
6productivity and lost workdays for individuals with chronic
7conditions and their caregiving family members in California was
8estimated to be $51 billion in 2010.

9(h) The cost of health care continues to surpass the rate of
10inflation, causing increasing strain on the budgets of families,
11employers, and the government. Yet the ability ofbegin delete healthcareend deletebegin insert health
12careend insert
alone to solve health problems that arise in the community
13is limited.

14(i) Despite the fact that chronic disease results in decreased
15quality of life, premature death, and exorbitant medical costs,
16investments in measures that prevent chronic disease have been

18(j) The United States spends only 2.6 percent of health care
19dollars on all public health, yet 75 percent of health care costs are
20attributable to preventable health conditions.

21(k) Paying for prevention works and upstream strategies have
22a remarkable history of success, measured in both cost avoidance
23and health improvement. In the County of Los Angeles, smoking
24begin delete amongstend deletebegin insert amongend insert high school students fell from 27 percent to 7
25percent between 1997 and 2013, thanks to investment in policy
26and environmental changes as well as education.

27(l) Childhood obesitybegin delete amongstend deletebegin insert amongend insert Los Angeles Unified
28School District 5th graders decreased by 10.6 percent (from 31.2
29percent to 27.9 percent) between 2010 and 2013, and leveled off
30among 7th and 9th graders, after nine years of steady increases,
31reflecting investments to reduce the consumption of
32 sugar-sweetened beverages, promote healthier eating, and increase
33physical activity.

34(m) The California Health and Human Services Agency, in
35partnership with the State Department of Public Health, has defined
36ambitious health improvement goals for the state through the “Let’s
37Get Healthy California” initiative, including making California
38the healthiest state in the nation by 2022, reducing health
39disparities, and achieving better health at lower cost. These goals
40cannot be met by improvements in health care or on an individual
P5    1basis alone. Meeting these goals requires urgent and substantial
2investment in community-based prevention of chronic disease and

4(n) The Health in All Policies Task Force was established by
5Executive Order No. S-04-10 on February 23, 2010, under the
6auspices of the Strategic Growth Council (SGC), in order to foster
7begin delete multi-agencyend deletebegin insert multiagencyend insert collaboration to identify priority
8programs, policies, and strategies to improve the health of
9Californians while advancing the SGC’s goals of improving air
10and water quality, protecting natural resources and agricultural
11lands, increasing the availability of affordable housing, improving
12infrastructure systems, promoting public health, planning
13sustainable communities, and meeting the state’s climate change

15(o) Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 47 (Resolution Chapter
1656 of the Statutes of 2012) affirms the work of the Health in All
17Policies Task Force by encouraging public officials in all sectors
18and levels of government to recognize that health is influenced by
19policies related to air and water quality, natural resources and
20agricultural land, affordable housing, infrastructure systems, public
21health, sustainable communities, and climate change, and to
22consider health when formulating policy, and by encouraging
23interdepartmental collaboration with an emphasis on the complex
24environmental factors that contribute to poor health and inequities
25when developing policies in a wide variety of areas, including, but
26not limited to, housing, transportation, education, air quality, parks,
27criminal justice, and employment.

28(p) The Office of Health Equity was established in Section
29131019.5 of the Health and Safety Code in order to achieve the
30highest level of health and mental health for all people, with special
31attention focused on those who have experienced socioeconomic
32disadvantage and historical injustice, and it directs the Office of
33Health Equity to work collaboratively with the Health in All
34Policies Task Force to promote work to prevent injury and illness
35through improved social and environmental factors that promote
36health and mental health.

37(q) The existing limited resources of funding for chronic disease
38prevention are threatened, declining from past levels, and subject
39to significant restrictions.

P6    1(r) Strategic investment in upstream prevention will protect, not
2deplete, the coffers of government. Investment in prevention has
3a strong evidence base of positive return on investment through
4reducing health care costs on a long-term basis.
