Promising Practices in Maternal & Child Health Program - Submission Information
About the Program
Under several projects funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), NIHCM has been working with health plans to improve their maternal and child health programs and practices for over 13 years. This work has focused on the exchange of information between the health insurance community, the federal government, and other national MCH stakeholders through meetings, webinars and publications. In order to continue to build the MCH infrastructure and capacity of health plans, NIHCM has created this Promising Practices in MCH program to recognize emerging and promising programs or policies in MCH, promote program replication and new collaborations, and create a dedicated space where health plans and other MCH leaders can share their success stories with peers.
Who Can Submit?
Anyone can submit a promising practice as long as it involves at least one health plan or health plan foundation. We are particularly interested in efforts involving partnerships, especially with state or local government and community groups, as well as efforts that involve family, youth, and/or consumers in the planning, development or implementation.
