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.

CDHN is delivering a Health Literacy Training Mini-series during April for people in communities. The series will consist of five unique training sessions. Each session will explore a different topic related to Health Literacy. The overall aim of the series is to increase awareness and improve knowledge and understanding of health literacy so that: People have increased confidence when using health information and services and feel better equipped to make health decisions Those who support people with health and social issues have a better understanding of people’s circumstances so they can provide the most effective and appropriate advice and help. Each session has been designed to be interactive and participative with use of breakout rooms and Zoom polls and will finish with a short insight gathering session where participants will be asked to share their experiences of using health information and making health decisions. Depending on the participant’s role and interest, they may wish to attend only one session or a number of sessions. Please note there are limited places on each training programme and booking is essential.
