MCAH Epidemiology and Health Disparities

The Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Section of the San Francisco Department of Public Health regularly monitors health related data and investigates health issues to guide health programs and policies. Public health, healthcare, social services, community agencies, and others can utilize the data presented in the epidemiological briefs below to better understand health disparities effecting various populations of mothers, children, and adolescents in San Francisco.

By comparing one group, geographic area, or risk factor to others, the analyses describe the existence of health disparities, but not necessarily the reasons for the differences. The results indicate existing social inequities (e.g., housing, education, jobs, income, and neighborhood conditions), preventable health disparities, and the potential for improving health and wellness throughout the life course.
