MCH Implementation Teams (MITs)

The Colorado Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program’s mission is to optimize the health and well-being of the maternal and child health population by employing primary prevention and early intervention public health strategies
The state MCH Program partners with local public health agencies (LPHAs) and other community partners to achieve collective success in effectively serving Colorado’s MCH population.

Following the identification of the nine MCH priorities in 2010, an MCH Implementation Team (MIT) was formed around each MCH priority. The MITs were charged with using Brownson’s evidence-based public health framework to develop state and local logic models and action plans for each priority area. The state and local action plans highlight evidence-based strategies, coordinated between the state and local level, that are intended to impact the MCH state and national performance measures over the next three to five years.

At the 2012 MCH Conference, the MITs discussed their processes of developing the content of the state and local action plans. The local action plans provide guidance for LPHAs on goals, objectives, and key activities to address the priorities. Click on the links below to access the 2012 MCH Conference presentations, state logic models & action plans, and local logic models & action plans.
