The Latino Health Assessment provides the context required to address and understand the unique health challenges of Latinos and Indigenous peoples who work and live in Santa Clara County.  Latinos make up nearly 25% of the county’s population and continue to face higher rates of obesity, diabetes, and COVID deaths compared to others in Santa Clara County.
