About HHSA

The County of San Diego (COSD) Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) provides vital health and social services to over 3.3 million residents across 18 cities, 18 federally recognized tribal reservations, 16 major naval and military installations, and 64 unincorporated areas. More than one in every three county residents is a direct recipient of our services each year, emphasizing HHSA’s critical role in ensuring the health and well-being of the region.

HHSA’s success in providing high value services and community engagement is built on the Live Well San Diego vision. HHSA safeguards the public interest by providing Treatment, Assistance, Protection, and Prevention (TAPP) services to county residents. Health and social services are developed and deployed by six service departments, six regional operations, and ten administrative support divisions.
