The Women’s and Infant Health (WIH) program is committed to improving maternal and child health (MCH) programs and enhancing the delivery of MCH services at the national, state and local levels. The program goal is to improve the health of women and infants through increased capacity of Title V MCH programs and coordination between stakeholders. The WIH program strives to reach this goal through projects and partnerships that strengthen the capacity of state health departments to conduct MCH epidemiology and surveillance; improve the ability of MCH programs to translate data into effective public health programs and policies; and partner with other key national stakeholders to promote emerging issues in maternal and child health.
