CDF's Cradle to Prison Pipeline® Campaign is a national and community crusade to engage families, youth, communities and policy makers in the development of healthy, safe and educated children. Poverty, racial disparities and a culture of punishment rather than prevention and early intervention are key forces driving the Pipeline. Inadequate access to healthcare also fuels the Pipeline. For a child, going without regular health care can mean living in poor health, missing days of school, and falling behind in school. Get the healthcare facts.
