aWhat is CADH's Role in Policy and Advocacy?
Connecticut Association of Directors of Health (CADH) has driven public health policy and advocacy initiatives since its inception, with a solid record of influencing public health policy on a host of critical issues. CADH is the collective voice of local public health at the Capitol and encourages its local health directors to present CADH with creative ideas and potential legislation to improve public health statewide. CADH advocates by monitoring the status of pending legislation; preparing fact sheets and written and oral testimony; organizing grassroots advocacy campaigns; maintaining relationships with policymakers; and collaborating with partner organizations. CADH also analyzes proposed state and federal regulations and policies impacting public health and offers comments, develops position papers, and makes recommendations on behalf of its membership.
Who are Some of CADH's Partners?
CADH works in partnership with multiple and diverse organizations, including the National Association of County and City Health Officials, American Public Health Association, Connecticut Environmental Health Association, Connecticut Public Health Association, Connecticut Conference of Municipalities and Connecticut Council of Small Towns. CADH welcomes the opportunity to continue fostering partnerships.
