The mission Of MSHP

The mission of MSHP is to empower moms and improve the overall health of children and babies. Students may choose to participate in either a one-year degree course or an eight-month master’s degree program. Both programs enable students to become certified in maternal and child health care. They can take advantage of state-mandated public health programs that are designed to train students to provide training in preventative care and to expand access to quality, affordable health care.

The Goal Of The Mshp

The goal of the MSHP is two fold: first, to educate expectant mothers on the importance of keeping their newborns safe and healthy from birth through delivery. Second, to provide care in the post-birth period, providing early intervention and clean water for infants born prematurely. As well, it provides assistance for mothers and fathers who have a history of poor health or who have experienced traumatic experiences during their pregnancies.

In the US, the Healthy Babies Initiative is administered by the state health agencies. Like the maternal and child health literacy initiatives, the Healthy Babies Initiative supports community development and serves the newborn screening and immunization programs. Each participating family must complete a form indicating that they will receive immunizations against preventable diseases. Infants in their first months of life are particularly at risk and should be vaccinated according to the recommendations of the Healthy Babies Initiative.

Child Health Clinics That Funded By The Federal Government 

For families who do not participate in the program, there are also child health clinics that are funded and staffed by the federal government and by the states. These facilities also provide immunization services for low-income families as well as pregnant women and their infants. These facilities receive federal funding through the National immunization plan (NIP), the Medicaid program, private sector sources such as individual health insurance companies and employer sponsored plans. In most states, child welfare agencies, pediatricians and other licensed health care professionals can provide direct child health care to families.

Last Words

It is critical that efforts to improve maternal and child health to be encompassed by governments, local communities and people at every level of society. Prevention and early intervention are the keys to preventing maternal and child deaths. It is important that people accept their responsibility as care givers for not only themselves but also for their children and communities. Combating issues such as social injustice and providing the resources needed by families and communities to meet these challenges must be a high priority.
