Healthy and Active Before 5 (HAB45) is a collaborative initiative in Contra Costa County. Our mission is to prevent obesity in kids age 0-5, by building partnerships and environments for healthy eating and active play.
HAB45’s core assets are its strong collaborative leadership and partnerships. Childhood obesity—and disparity in its distribution across the population—is a tremendously complex public health problem that requires strategic, collaborative efforts and a host of coordinated strategies to treat and prevent. HAB45 is at the center of quality collaboration in the county, by coordinating efforts to address the social determinants of early childhood health and build health equity.
