CDHN is a membership organisation working across NI to end health inequalities using a community development approach.

Community Development and Health Network (CDHN) was established in 1995 and is the only regional community development and health infrastructure support organisation in Northern Ireland. 

CDHN works towards its mission through three strategic aims:


•Networking - sharing and developing best practice
•Influencing Policy - supporting members to influence policy development
•Campaigning - mainstreaming the message that community development is an effective method for tackling health inequalities

CDHN is a values based organisation: we believe that health is a human right and is defined by a range of issues, not just the absence of ill health.

The organisation delivers the Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP) Programme which is funded by the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB).  This programme supports communities and community pharmacists to work in partnership to address locally defined needs to bring about sustainable improvements in health and wellbeing.
