The Centre for Developmental Disability Health (CDDHV), an academic unit established in 1998 by the Victorian State Government to improve health outcomes for people with developmental disabilities. The Centre works with mainstream healthcare providers to build professional level understanding in relation to the health and healthcare issues of people with disabilities. Our aim is to build the capacity of mainstream health services to optimise health, function and wellbeing and therefore to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities.
Better Lives through Better Health.
