The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) is a preventive program that delivers periodic health assessments and services to low income children and youth in California.  CHDP provides care coordination to assist families with medical appointment scheduling, transportation, and access to diagnostic and treatment services.  Health assessments are provided by enrolled private physicians, local health departments, community clinics, managed care plans, and some local school districts.
