Community Health Planning and Policy Development

The CHPPD Section influences the design of health systems and policies that are responsive to a changing society - bringing together technical information and the expertise of communities, health professionals, business and government. We understand the importance, power, and balance of community advocacy. We seek to shift policy in order to eliminate disparities and promote healthy communities in public and private venues.
