Grant to a USA public or private nonprofit IHE or public or private nonprofit agency to support a national forum for research regarding mother and child health. Applicants should register to apply immediately. The forum will be involved in measurement research by producing an evolving compendium of available high quality measures of maternal and child health, and by identifying gaps in existing measures for future development purposes.
The goals of the research network are as follows:
1. To establish a Research Network comprised of interdisciplinary experts who represent the MCH lifespan and who are active in the measurement of health and well-being of MCH populations;
2. To formulate a national research agenda with regard to existing and needed health measurements for MCH populations with high relevance to MCHB programs;
3. To collaborate in the development, validation and implementation of new MCH health measures that address identified gaps, using external public and private funding sources; and
4. To translate and apply Network findings into a variety of practices, policies, and processes, such as Title V programs, home visiting programs, Healthy Start Programs, services for children with special health care needs, services that promote child, adolescent, and family health, state and local health departments, community safety net programs, and other public health programs serving MCH populations, particularly those that represent underserved communities, such as low socioeconomic status, racial and ethnic minorities, and rural communities.
