Community Responses to Improve Maternal and Child Health
This is a group of outstanding papers that address community based strategies for addressing health problems under challenging circumstances. While generally demonstrated within an individual community or setting, they have broad relevance for other communities.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will: 1. Identify one community-based approach to improving maternal and child health in the United States. 2. Identify one community based strategy for improving maternal and child health in the international community. 3. Identify common strategies that might work to improve health outcomes in any vulnerable community.
