MCH Timeline: History, Legacy and Resources for Education and Practice

Welcome to the MCH Timeline which traces the history of maternal and child health in the U.S., provides in-depth modules on topics such as MCH 101, MCH Systems of Care, Infant Mortality and MCH Performance and Accountability, and allows you to search for topical areas of interest to you. If you are interested in MCH history and its legacy, this site is for you. We hope that it will be used as an orientation tool for those new to the MCH profession, for grantees of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and MCH students. We also hope that those with experience in the field will find it a rich resource and a source of inspiration.
