Maternal And Child Health Services


Program Purpose

Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs promote the development of local systems of health care for pregnant women, children ages 0 through 21, and their families. The programs also support the continued improvement in the health, safety, and well-being of all mothers and children in Kansas, especially low-income and at-risk families. Fundamental to MCH programs are services that are family-centered, community-based, collaborative, comprehensive, flexible, coordinated, culturally competent and developmentally appropriate. In addition, local grantees are expected to make a special effort to build community capacity to deliver enabling services as care coordination, transportation, home visiting, and nutrition counseling, which complement and help ensure the success of KanCare (State Medicaid and SCHIP) medical assistance programs.


Continue funding of local agencies that demonstrate progress toward specific objectives, meet program requirements and participate in education updates.
