Projects & Resources at CHLPI
To advance our mission, CHLPI leads several projects and develops numerous resources to drive transformative change within our focus areas. We address a range of issues from nutrition in health care, to HCV treatment access, to global food waste, to protecting transgender health care rights, and beyond. Throughout these efforts, we equip stakeholders with the tools, research, and recommendations they need to navigate the complex health- and food-related landscapes in which we work.
Health Law & Policy
Health Care Access and Coverage
We support increased access to high-quality and comprehensive care and treatment for systemically marginalized communities, particularly people with lower income, Communities of Color, and people living with chronic health conditions.
Social Determinants of Health
In order to address the long-standing health disparities impacting our communities, we must rethink health system design. We help bridge the gap between health care and social services by supporting law and policy reforms that address patients’ health-related social needs.
Health Care Rights Enforcement
When health care rights are on the line, we fight discrimination in health care systems by prosecuting impact litigation and supporting other cases with amicus briefs.
Food Law & Policy
Food Waste and Recovery
Approximately one-third of the world’s food is lost or wasted. We are at the forefront of policy efforts to reduce food waste and promote the recovery of safe food in the United States and around the world.
Community-Led Food System Change
We provide communities with the tools they need to identify challenges in their food system, understand the legal policy changes that could address the root causes of those problems, and implement changes through policy advocacy.
Food Access and Nutrition
Understanding the role that nutrition plays in shaping health outcomes, we identify and promote key legal and policy levers that increase people’s physical and economic access to nutritious and safe foods.
Sustainable and Equitable Food Production
Food is fundamental, and so too are the systems to produce it. Our work supports the creation of healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable food production.
Health Care in Motion
Health Care in Motion is CHLPI’s regular digest of updates, action alerts, policy development analysis, white papers, and advocacy tools addressing the changing health care policy landscape. Our goal is to provide timely and concise information on recent health policy developments, the potential impact of those developments, and guidance on next steps in advocacy to protect the needs of our communities.
