  • All children are born healthy to healthy mothers
  • No health disparities among racial / ethnic, gender, economic, and religion groups
  • A safe and healthy environment for women and families
  • Equal access for all women, children, and their families to appropriate and needed care within an integrated and seamless system

To achieve these goals, we work to:

  • Assure early and continuous prenatal care for all pregnant women, especially low-income women
  • Reduce the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs during pregnancy in order to prevent serious medical problems in the infants who are born to women who use these drugs
