Child Maltreatment National Peer Learning Team

What is the national peer learning team?


The Child Maltreatment National Peer Learning Team aims to help public health departments engage with the topic of child maltreatment prevention by learning about successful strategies, exchanging expertise on how to elevate the priority of this work within the realm of public health, and leveraging necessary resources to advance prevention.   

The team is a collaboration between the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Program for Injury Prevention, Education and Research (PIPER). It launched in 2017 with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
