Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health

The MCAH Program has four major goals:

  • All children born healthy to healthy mothers.
  • No health status disparities among racial/ethnic, gender, economic, and regional groups.
  • A safe and healthy environment for women, children, and their families.
  • Equal access for all women, children, and their families to appropriate and needed care within an integrated and seamless system.

Program emphasis is to utilize the core public health functions; community collaboration; infrastructure development; and provision of family-centered, culturally competent services to improve health outcomes for the MCAH population. The MCAH program is involved with analyzing vital record data. Data on birth weights, first trimester entry into prenatal care, infant mortality, unintentional/intentional injury, breast feeding, and teenage birth rates are used as indicators to measure success with local intervention programs. Several projects within the MCAH Program that work to meet the program goals include:

 

  • Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP)
  • Child Safety Seat Program (OTS)
  • Community Challenge Program (CCP)
  • Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)
  • Male Involvement Program (MIP)
  • Perinatal Outreach Education (POE)
  • Web Site Links
