Our Research

Main Goals of Research Activities at the National HCH Council

  • Increase understanding of homeless health care. National HCH Council staff work in collaboration with homeless health care projects, academic institutions, and national homeless or health care organizations to generate new information that will improve our understanding of homeless clinical issues, health care access, delivery systems, and program effectiveness.
  • Utilize existing research to inform clinical practice and public policy. National HCH Council staff compile existing research data of particular relevance to HCH practice and policy, and work with others in the field to identify implications for practice and policy.
  • Enhance the ability of HCH projects to engage in research/evaluation to improve practice and policy. National HCH Council staff serve as a resource to the Bureau of Primary Health Care/HCH Branch and others involved in research endeavors relevant to HCH practice through informal consultation, involvement in workgroups, and implementation of specific program evaluation activities.
