- AMCHP announces next round of Action Learning Lab on Perinatal HIV Prevention
- Action Learning Labs (ALLs) are intensive training programs that bring diverse state agencies and programs together to tackle priority issues in maternal and child health. The Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) designed the labs to promote collaboration at the state level and improve family health programs. AMCHP has conducted ALLs since 1996 on a range of topics including Medicaid and SCHIP reforms, smoking cessation, perinatal HIV transmission, and perinatal disparities. The ALL is based on the notion of a learning community, a quality improvement methodology used extensively to make organizational improvements and systems changes.
- Look for applications and eligibility in May 2004 on AMCHP's Web site at www.amchp.org. Five state teams will be chosen to participate in a two-day ALL in September to help them develop effective strategies to reduce perinatal HIV transmission at the state level.
