MCHB PERFORMANCE MEASURES
- National performance measures were developed and approved by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) for annual reporting by all MCHB grantees. A Performance Measure describes a specific maternal and child health need that, when successfully addressed, can lead to better health outcomes.
- Bi-annual meetings are held with HTPCP grantees to offer training focused on maternal and child health and opportunities to network. The 2011 training meeting agenda and presentations can be found here.
