Plenary — Collaborative Approaches to Addressing Maternal and Infant Health Disparities

November 3, 2021

The Healthy Start program has made incredible progress and accomplished tremendous work over the past 30 years. The program’s success would not be possible without its various collaborations and partnerships on the community and national levels. Similarly, the Women’s & Infant Health team at the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) also works collaboratively with partners at the
federal, state, and local levels to positively impact the health of women, infants, and children. This session will provide an overview of AMCHP and discuss key projects in the Women’s & Infant Health team’s
portfolio. Specifically, the speakers will emphasize areas where Healthy Start Grantees are needed and necessary participants and collaborators.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Identify AMCHP as a key partner in the work of Healthy Start grantees
  • Describe key national initiatives address maternal and infant mortality working in alignment with Health Start
  • Identify areas within national MCH initiatives that would benefit from Healthy Start representation
