Our commitment to advancing the health and well-being of vulnerable populations

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As we move into a new presidential term, there is some uncertainty about the future direction of health policy and its implications for vulnerable populations. The Center for Advancing Health Policy and Practice (CAHPP) remains committed to excellence in our role as providers of non-partisan evidence-based analysis, technical assistance, and applied research support to all policymakers and stakeholders as we strive to improve the health care system in the United States.

The team at CAHPP is ready to provide you with guidance about a range of policies and practices, such as:

  • Health insurance and financing for children and youth with special health care needs;
  • Medicaid policy changes, especially as they relate to Medicaid expansion and future financing mechanisms, such as Medicaid block grants;
  • Implementing and evaluating programs that promote the health and well-being of people living with HIV including peer, patient navigation, community health worker, opioid treatment, and jail-based interventions; and
  • Policy changes as they relate to people who face challenges of homelessness, substance use, and/or mental health disorders.

We pledge to continue working in partnership with you to promote access to high-quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination for every person regardless of age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic status. Please reach out to us with your questions; we are here to help.
