Alabama The Maternal and Child Health Federal-State Partnership


 
The Title V Program is administratively located within the Bureau of Family Health Services (FHS), a major unit within the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH). Through FHS, ADPH administers all aspects of the Title V Program except services for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Children's Rehabilitation Service (CRS), a major division of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS), administers services to CYSHCN. This arrangement requires close collaboration between ADPH and CRS. In addition to the Title V Program, FHS manages the Title X Family Planning Grant; the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and the State Dental Program. In addition to managing services to CYSHCN, CRS manages the Alabama Hemophilia Program.
