The Title V MCH Program envisions a nation where all mothers, children and youth, including children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN), and their families are healthy and thriving. The mission of Title V MCH is to improve the health and well-being of the nation’s mothers, infants, children, and youth, including children and youth with special health care needs, and their families. The priorities of the Wisconsin Title V MCH Program for 2016-2020 are:
- Engaging in healthy behaviors
- Having positive mental health factors and healthy interpersonal relationships
- Mitigating risks, being safe and free from injuries
- Receiving preventive screening and follow-up
- Accessing and receiving quality health care
- Selecting and implementing health equity-increasing strategies in all state priority areas
- Building and sustaining infrastructure to assure data-informed policy, systems, and environmental strategies

The MCH and CYSHCN programs are in the process of completing their needs assessment that will tell them what is working well, or needs a bit more attention, when it comes to maternal and child health in Wisconsin. An important piece of this process is asking Wisconsinites about life in our communities.
You can help with this important assessment! Please fill-out a 10 minute survey that asks about quality of life and the health conditions in your community.
Federal Title V is the funding source, received from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).
