This case study outlines how the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) incorporated health equity capacity into their collaborative work with community partners (the case study refers to this as a “public health cloud”). To do so, MCDPH created internal trainings, hired consultants to provide recommendations in strategic planning, and created a health equity cloud to connect staff directly to underserved communities in order to improve internal practices.
