MEANINGFUL CHANGE: MEASURABLE RESULTS

The Child Health and Development Institute (CHDI) improves the health and well-being of Connecticut’s children.

Our goal is to build stronger and more effective health and mental health systems that result in better outcomes for all children in Connecticut, especially the underserved.

We accomplish this through research, evaluation, training and technical assistance and support for demonstration projects that inform system change.

Together with our parent organization, the Children’s Fund of Connecticut, CHDI:

  • Reforms Policy: We analyze and advocate for policy that reflects the best of what science and experience teaches us.
  • Strengthens Systems: We collaborate to identify and support best practice improvements in Connecticut’s health, mental health and early childhood systems.
  • Improves Practice: We advance and inform improvements in primary and preventive pediatric health and mental health care practices in Connecticut.

CHDI works in close partnership with the state’s leading medical schools, children’s hospitals, policymakers, state agencies, child-serving organizations and advocates to achieve our goals.
