Children's Health Forum
The Children’s Health Forum (CHF) is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and eradication of childhood diseases that disproportionately impact underserved communities through outreach, public education, and support of community-based partnerships with local elected officials, health advocates, and the private sector.
Historically, CHF’s primary activity has been in the prevention of childhood lead poisoning, the most significant and preventable environmental health problem facing America’s children. CHF has since expanded its focus to include asthma, diabetes and pediatric HIV/AIDS. CHF believes that public education and grassroots programming are fundamental to the prevention of childhood diseases and works to make a difference through proactive, pragmatic and preventive solutions at the local, state and federal levels of government with a strong emphasis on Washington, DC and its surrounding communities.
