Improving the Health and Well-being of all Californians

The County Health Executives Association of California (CHEAC) is a statewide organization of county and city Health Department and Agency Directors, who are responsible for the administration, oversight, and delivery of a broad range of local public health and indigent health care services. Members represent a variety of administrative and health professional disciplines.

CHEAC is dedicated to the promotion, protection, and improvement of the health of California's population. The organization's objective is to maximize local health departments' financial, organizational, and programmatic capacity to deliver local health services. To accomplish this, CHEAC:

  • Promotes effective public policy through legislative, state budget, and administrative advocacy.
  • Evaluates program structures, including administrative and fiscal elements, and educates policy makers on strategies to successfully deliver local health services.
  • Collaborates with key health and professional organizations to further our common health improvement goals.
