California Health and Human Services Agency

The role of the California Health and Human Services Agency is to provide policy leadership and direction to the departments and programs it oversees, to reduce duplication and fragmentation and improve coordination among the departments, to ensure programmatic integrity, and to advance the Governor's priorities on health and human services issues.

The Agency coordinates the administration of state and federal programs for public health, health care services, social services, public assistance, health planning and licensing, and rehabilitation. These programs touch the lives of millions of California's most needy and vulnerable residents. The Agency is responsible for balancing the twin imperatives of providing access to essential health and human services for California's most disadvantaged and at-risk residents and managing and controlling costs.
