 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 Center focuses on four key service areas that together provide the critical skills necessary for effective maternal and child health leadership in a the current health transformation environment.


Every strong initiative begins with an in-depth assessment. Upon contacting the Center, you can discuss your project idea with one of our team members who will develop an initial service plan, tailored to your needs, for your review. In general, if your request is limited to assistance in just one of our Core areas, we can offer tailored assistance via phone consultation or onsite visits. For complex challenges we will co-create a comprehensive plan to meet your needs. Please email​ to discuss your training/consultation needs.


The National MCH Workforce Development Center is funded by a cooperative agreement (#UE7MC26282) with the Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
