Annotation: This volume presents charts and narratives describing the initiatives of 94 health departments to improve maternal and child health, together with the presentations at a conference that brought together urban maternal and child health leaders from city and county health departments throughout the country to discuss ways to improve linkages among agencies serving low-income infants, children and parents.
Abstract: Speakers described a program focusing on low- birthweight babies and their families in Pittsburgh; the public/private partnership to improve child health and prevent child disability in Orange County (Calif.); and the role of urban health departments in Medicaid managed care, publicly funded managed care, and children's health. The individual initiatives are describes with respect to their inclusion of women's health services, perinatal health services, child immunizations, early intervention with children, school-linked or school-based services, efforts to address adolescent pregnancy and parenting, efforts to improve access to care for urban children and families, and approaches to strengthening urban public health systems in the area of maternal and child health. The narratives cover the location, purpose of the specific initiative, linkages with other agencies and sectors, barriers to implementing the initiative, funding, indicators of success, and adaptability to other urban communities.
