A list of the selected agencies and the Request for Proposals are provided below.

Director's Message
Welcome to the Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention website

Los Angeles County is becoming a healthier place. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention - in collaboration with our community partners - is helping make it happen. Good health is precious. It provides the foundation for a strong quality of life for children, families, and the community. When we focus on prevention and make our communities places of health, everyone benefits. Children, families, businesses. That's why the Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention focuses on improving the health for all residents in Los Angeles County -- by reducing the occurrences, severity, and consequences of chronic diseases and injuries.

I encourage you to explore the resources we have listed on these pages and appreciate your interest in our efforts.
