Community Development and Health Network (CDHN)
CDHN's mission is to end health inequalities using a community development approach. By this they mean campaigning, influencing policy and developing best practice work which shows that communities, both geographical and of interest & identity, can define their own health needs and design and implement preventative and radical solutions.
They believe that our health is affected by more than access to health services, individual lifestyle choices and our own genetic make-up. These other factors can include poverty, the environment, education, living and working conditions, housing, access to food and social and community networks.
