The Assessment, Planning and Health Policy Division has a team of epidemiologists who gather, assess, and analyze data on Santa Clara County residents' health status. Epidemiologists work with mappers, health planners, writers and media personnel to present data to the community and to develop reports with insights into specific health issues (e.g. health disparities, social determinants of health). Statistics on mortality and morbidity, as well as health behavior and outcomes, aid in the development of public health policies and programs and are used in grant writing, strategic planning, program evaluation, resource allocation, and prioritization.
