Office of Multicultural Health
Unity in Health, Diversity in Culture
The Office of Multicultural Health (OMH) is a shared policy office within the Director’s Office of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The OMH serves as a focal point in both Departments for improved planning and coordination of activities and programs related to racial and ethnic populations in California and a liaison between both Departments and outside stakeholders. The OMH has a 24 member multicultural health advisory council which advises the Departments and Directors on multicultural health issues.
