The goal of the Healthy Start Program, funded through HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), is to reduce disparities in maternal and infant health. Using a life course approach, the program has focused on improving the health of mothers, infants, and families in those communities with the highest rates of infant mortality, maternal morbidity and mortality, and other adverse birth outcomes such as prematurity and low birth weight, with an emphasis on racial, ethnic, social, and economic disparities. MCHB has long recognized the importance of addressing health disparities and inequitable access to health services and has continuously conducted assessment and evaluation of the program. Evaluation data are key to the identification of strengths and successes of the Healthy Start programs, as well as opportunities for improvement and development. Evaluation data can be used to improve the programs at the grantee and national levels; data can also demonstrate the value and importance of Healthy Start and provide evidence for the need for continued funding, thus ensuring a stable resource within high-risk communities.
