A closer look at the Cross Sector Attorneys for Health (CSAH) Collaboration

CSAH members are currently working on a white paper on the opioid epidemic and the role and efficacy of medication-assisted treatment in harm reduction.

Those interested in learning more about this initiative or in participating as a CSHA member should contact Carrie McLachlan, Program Development Manager, Network for Public Health Law National Office.

We believe cross-sector collaboration is paramount to tackling the major public health issues of today. Our CSAH initiative seeks to bring cross-cutting areas of legal and policy expertise to identify areas of opportunities and challenges for improving health.

Members of CSAH include practitioners from education, housing, transportation, social justice, advocacy and other sectors.
