Maternal and Child Health, Title V Needs Assessment

Help support Wisconsin’s Maternal and Child Health, Title V needs assessment

As part of federal funding, the Wisconsin Title V, Maternal and Child Health program implements a comprehensive, statewide needs assessment every five years. A needs assessment is a strategy to identify unmet health and health care needs of a population and then make changes to meet those unmet needs.

Our Maternal and Child Health, Title V needs assessment will work to identify current community strengths, partnerships, and areas where people need more support to improve the health of our maternal and child populations. The needs assessment work will take place in 2024 and part of 2025 and will inform the Title V program's priorities and program decisions for 2026 through 2030.

Our goal for the upcoming needs assessment is to include diverse, community voices in helping plan our needs assessment so that when it launches, we can reach and hear from our state’s communities and those populations most impacted by maternal and child health efforts.
