- The Child Health Institute is a collaborative research effort comprising faculty from the Division of General Pediatrics withing the School of Medicine, and from the Department of Health Services within the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of Washington. It is one of the few research centers in the United States devoted exclusively to the study of the access, cost-effectiveness, quality and outcomes of health care for children.
Community-oriented Public Health Practice Program
- The faculty of the CO/PHP program view public health practice as a means to improve the public's health, to empower and motivate communities, and to promote social change. We believe that the historical and ethical underpinnings of public health are the foundation upon which public health practice should be built. Therefore, throughout the program we will emphasize thougthful consideration of such concepts as social justice, cultural sensitivity, and health equity.
Maternal and Child Health Program
- The mission of the University of Washington's Maternal and Child Health Program is to provide leadership within the School of Public Health and Community Medicine to advance the health and well-being of families and children in the Northwest and nationally. We do this by educating public health leaders, by creating new knowledge related to the current, important maternal and child health problems, and by collaborating with community and government partners to improve health systems, programs, and policies, and policies related to families and children.
