Child Health and Disability Prevention Program
This preventive health program makes early health care available to children and youth with health problems as well as to those who seem well. Many children and youth in California have unmet health needs. Through the CHDP program, eligible children receive periodic preventive health assessments. Children with suspected problems are then referred for diagnosis and treatment. Many health problems can be prevented or corrected, or the severity reduced, by early detection and prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Health Care Program for Children in Foster Care (HCPCFC)
Local CHDP programs also administer a public health nursing program for children in foster care known as the Health Care Program for Children in Foster Care (HCPCFC). Public health nurses in the HCPCFC work with county child welfare services agencies and departments of probation to address the medical, dental, mental and developmental needs of children and youth in foster care. They provide their professional health care expertise and knowledge of the community to the caseworkers, foster care parents and providers, health care providers and others on the foster care team.
