 About Us

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Major transformations in the health care and health financing sectors offer opportunities to improve public health systems, state and community health care delivery, and ultimately, key health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V programs are uniquely positioned to help lead and influence major health system reform initiatives as they affect women, children and families.

The National MCH Workforce Development Center at UNC Chapel Hill, in cooperation with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), and in partnership with the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and national experts in MCH innovation and quality improvement, will offer state and territorial Title V leaders training, collaborative learning, coaching and consultation in implementing health reform using a variety of learning platforms. In the current dynamic context, tools and resources to strengthen MCH capacity and skills in the following four core areas will be available through the National Center to move from evidence to action:

  •  Improving access to care
  •  Using quality improvement tools to drive transformation
  •  Fostering integration within public health and across sectors including primary care, mental
     health, early intervention and community-based service delivery and financing systems
  •  Furthering change management, including effective collective action skills that will lead health
     improvement for MCH populations

The National MCH Workforce Development Center offers a range of trainings, tools, and resources to strengthen MCH workforce capacity to lead through health transformation. The Center offers training in four key areas: access to care, quality improvement, systems integration and change management. State/territory Title V agencies/MCH programs and their partners will have the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and tools in the four key areas and apply them to a current health transformation project of interest. The application for the final two cohorts is being released and is due simultaneously; states/territories are allowed to choose between Cohort 3 and Cohort 4 according to the timeline and training location that best fits their needs. Cohort 3 will run from July 2015-March 2016 and the training will be held in Denver or San Francisco. Cohort 4 will run from November 2015-June 2016 and training will be held in the Washington DC area. States and territories are strongly encouraged to apply to participate in Cohort 3 or 4, as current project funding ends in August 2016. Applications are available here. All applications must be received by June 1, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. EST.​
