Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH)
The Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Section mission is to improve pregnancy outcomes and child health and development by promoting family and community health and service provider participation and responsibility.

Client-Centered Services are Based on the Following Five Points of Action:

bullet It is everyone’s responsibility to improve pregnancy and child health outcomes. This means that our staff, the government, community, home, and individuals must work together to improve the health of pregnant women and to protect the health and survival of our children.
bullet To improve pregnancy and child health outcomes, we improve the community’s knowledge base and skill level.
bullet To improve pregnancy and child health outcomes, we link pregnant and parenting women with the resources and services they need.
bullet We focus on the factors that are known to impact pregnancy and infant health outcomes, such as substance abuse, dental disease prevention, adequate spacing between pregnancies, vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and breastfeeding.
bullet We identify, promote and follow best practice medical standards for client screening, education and treatment.
