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 to identify and investigate health problems affecting mothers, children, and adolescents in San Francisco.

The data tables, data briefs, and journal articles on this page summarize local health trends and disparities. Health disparities between population groups, geographies, and social factors (e.g., housing, education, jobs, income, and neighborhood conditions) signal preventable health problems and potential for health improvement. Community agencies can use the monitoring results to develop plans, policies, and services to solve health problems and promote health and wellness for all San Franciscans.
