The Division of Maternal & Infant Health (DMIH) is home to an array of public health programs, initiatives and interventions aimed at improving the health and well-being of women, infants, families and communities.
To achieve further success in improving the outcomes for Michigan mothers, infants and families, we must make data-informed decisions, deploy strategies to address systemic inequities and inequities in the social determinants of health, eliminate the disparities facing women, engage extended families, caregivers, and fathers, and further develop and sustain strong collaborative partnerships.
In September 2019, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) released the 2020-2023,
Mother Infant Health & Equity Improvement Plan (MIHEIP).
The Improvement Plan builds upon the many successes that have and are improving the lives of mothers, infants and families and delves into the heart of the disparities that exist in our state. The State of Michigan's existing efforts and initiatives have resulted in significant accomplishments towards improving the health and well-being of mothers, infants and families.
Zero preventable deaths.
Zero health disparities.
