Trauma Prevention Initiative

Vision
To reduce disparities in trauma visits in Los Angeles County through a public health approach.

Partner with trauma centers, county departments and community stakeholders to decrease trauma disparities and reduce trauma injuries and deaths throughout Los Angeles County.

About
The Department of Public Health (DPH) is partnering with the Department of Health Services (DHS) and other county and community partners to implement a Trauma Prevention Initiative.  The goal of the Initiative, established in December 2015, is to reduce trauma visits and deaths throughout Los Angeles County, beginning with reducing the high rates of violence in South Los Angeles.  The Initiative will build a foundation for a comprehensive approach to violence prevention and intervention by coordinating strategies across the lifespan, leveraging resources of existing programs and developing innovative programs, policies, and partnerships.
