AMCHP considers national and state issues, needs, policies, plans and programs relevant to the use of data and other kinds of information to assess needs, monitor health status and problems, develop policies and programs, and evaluate and assure the quality, efficacy and effectiveness of interventions designed to promote family health. AMCHP collaborates within and across agencies at the national and state level to address the need to integrate data, programs and policy for improved health among maternal and child populations. AMCHP also provides state leadership with information and assistance in building states' data capacity.
Data and Assessment activities are funded by cooperative agreements with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Division of Reproductive Health and the Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
