New Hampshire The Maternal and Child Health Federal-State Partnership


 
The Title V program is located in the NH Department of Health and Human Services. It is divided between the Maternal and Child Health Section (MCH) located within the Division of Public Health Services and the Special Medical Services Unit (SMS) located within the Division of Community Based Care Services. Guided by a Memorandum of Understanding, administration of the Block Grant is assigned jointly to MCH for services to women, infants and children, and to SMS for children and youth with special health care needs. Together both components of the Title V program provide direct, enabling, population based, and infrastructure building services in the following areas: maternal and child health; children with special health care needs; family planning; perinatal health; primary care; adolescent health; teen pregnancy prevention; home visiting; health and safety in child care; injury prevention; early hearing detection and intervention; and newborn screening.
