Welcome to the Institute for Child Health Policy

The Institute for Child Health Policy (ICHP) consists of University of Florida faculty members who conduct research to promote the health of children, adolescents, and young adults. We focus on examining factors that contribute to disparities in health and health care outcomes for minority and underserved children and youth, and we develop strategies to address these issues.

The Department of Health Outcomes and Policy in the College of Medicine serves as an important support infrastructure for ICHP and is the academic home for many of its faculty members.
