One in four people have a disability. The National Center on Disability in Public Health uses evidenced-based strategies to develop and increase the ability of public health professionals to include people who have disabilities. We build capacity by encouraging collaboration between public health partners and AUCD’s Network Centers in every state and territory. Let’s work together to address health disparities for people who have a disability.
AUCD and its national network strive to support the critical role that healthcare providers play in serving everyone in the community – including people who have a disability.
We work to increase awareness of monitoring developmental milestones. Developmental monitoring and screening identifies early signs of developmental disabilities and delays that may be related to factors like genetics or exposures like Zika, alcohol, or opioids.
Emergency preparedness is critical for everyone in the community – including people who have disabilities.
Everyone deserves access to healthy food to maintain a healthy weight. This includes people with disabilities.
We provide resources on a wide range of topics including dating, healthy relationships, sexual orientation, and sexual health for individuals with disabilities, parents, guardians, family members, professionals, and educators.
We support wellness and mental health for people with disabilities across the lifespan. Health promotion needs to include people with disabilities.
