West Virginia The Maternal and Child Health Federal-State Partnership


 
The Office of Maternal, Child and Family Health (OMCFH) is the agency in West Virginia State government which administers Title V. The OMCFH is located within the State's Bureau for Public Health. The Bureau's overall goal is to attain and maintain a healthier environment for West Virginians by placing special emphasis on community-based programming that facilitates an accessible service delivery system. In line with the Bureau for Public Health, the OMCFH provides operational guidance and support to providers throughout West Virginia to improve the health of families. In addition to providing funding support for actual service delivery, the OMCFH funds projects intended to develop new knowledge that will ultimately improve the service delivery of the health community. The OMCFH is comprised of multiple divisions, programs, and projects all designed to promote improved health care access and increased utilization of preventive care. OMCFH's organizational structure includes the Division of Women and Perinatal Services; Division of Infant, Child and Adolescent Health, including the CSHCN Program; and the Division of Research, Evaluation and Planning. Among the services included withing the OMCFH's administrative control are: the State's EPSDT Program; the State's Perinatal Program, Right From The Start, for indigent and uninsured women; the State's Early Intervention/Part C Program; an SSDI Project focusing on integration of Program data; the Birth Defects Surviellance System; the Newborn Metabolic and Hearing and CCHD Screening Programs; and in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the State's Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program as well as the State's Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Project and PRAMS, a surveillance system for pregnancy risk monitoring.
