A Framework for Child Health Services: Promoting optimal health, development, and well-being for all children
CHDI and Connecticut Children’s Office for Community Child Health outlined a joint vision for improving child and population health in A Framework for Child Health Services: Promoting optimal health, development, and well-being for all children.
This 2019 Framework builds on the original Framework for Child Health Services published in 2009. It highlights progress on implementing recommendations from the original Framework and puts forth new recommendations for integrating child health services with a fuller range of services from other sectors, such as housing and nutrition, that contribute to optimal health and development.
