Maternal and Child Health Project
The Maternal and Child Health project is a citywide initiative led by Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln in coordination with pediatric and maternal healthcare providers in the city. The project focuses on improving the quality of healthcare provided to children and pregnant women in the city through ongoing quality improvement projects with local healthcare clinics. Additionally, the project aims to increase access to quality prenatal care in our community to help reduce the rates of preterm birth and other maternal/neonatal complications.
The 2020 project focused on well-child examinations for children less than 6 years old and perinatal depression screening. In 2021, the project will will also focus on childhood vaccinations, among other quality measures.
