Maternal and Child Health Data

Health outcomes for women, infants, and children in Massachusetts are some of the best in the nation - however some racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic inequities persist.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health promotes physical, social, and emotional well-being and resilience by fostering healthy environments in pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood. The Department provides direct services, linkages, and referrals; builds capacity; conducts research and evaluation; and supports policy and systems development to eliminate health inequities and improve health outcomes for all families.
