When our children are healthy, they are more likely to succeed. Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs help promote our children’s success by identifying emerging and urgent health needs, while continuing to assure services like prenatal care, universal newborn screening, immunizations and health coverage. Our goal is to eliminate barriers to health care and increase access to high quality health care.
