The Children’s Partnership, the California Children’s Trust, and the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality have partnered together on a report entitled Reimagining Medi-Cal: Collaborating with Families and Communities to Advance Child Health Equity. This report highlights the role that social drivers play in shaping a child’s health and well-being. Recent reforms to Medi-Cal promise better serving the whole child’s health. The report recommends that success to this promise is rooted in collaboration between managed care organizations and community partners: 

  • Community collaboratives for health working cross-sector;
  • Community-based organizations (CBOs) serving children/families; and
  • Families and youth themselves
