CWSD Donations

Helping CWSD improve the wellbeing of underserved communities in San Diego County.

________________________________________________________________________________________________


Many diverse communities in San Diego County — such as those within City Heights, El Cajon, South Bay, and Southeast San Diego — continue to face health disparities that in turn negatively affect their community well-being. Improving health outcomes remains one of the essential approaches to achieving community well-being.


To bring change to these communities, such as closing the health disparity gaps, a community-based organization whose services center on cultural responsiveness is needed. Community Wellbeing San Diego (CWSD), a non-profit organization, was created to address this need. 


Effectively reducing disparities and inequities in health is challenging, as there are many contributing elements such as social, cultural, economic, and physical factors surrounding communities that are recognized as significant determinants of health.

 

While socioeconomic factors such as race/ethnicity, age, income, and employment have been recognized as important indicators of health outcomes, the significance of health literacy in affecting health outcomes has been largely overlooked. The American Medical Association, in fact, indicates that poor health literacy may be one of the stronger predictors of health outcomes than other factors.


The intricate, ecological association among individuals and their health requires a correspondingly multi-faceted approach. CWSD therefore addresses community health outcomes by using strategic, multidimensional approaches to understand, evaluate, and implement interventions such as health literacy improvement for targeted communities.
