Every child, youth, adolescent, and young adult has
access to a healthy life.
To promote the health and well being of children, youth,
adolescents, and young adults in Los Angeles County
through collaboration with other public health programs,
private agencies and community-based organizations.
The Child and Adolescent Health Program and Policy
(CAHPP) works to identify community organizations,
businesses, and other health partners to create a new
adolescent health collaborative in Los Angeles County to
address health disparities which impact youth and their
families. In February 2004, the Los Angeles
County-Department of Health Services, Child Abuse
Prevention Program merged with the Child and Adolescent
Health unit. CAHPP continues to provide child abuse
prevention services and resources to providers and
families within Los Angeles County.
