Ohio's Maternal and Child Health Fact Sheets

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH), Division of Family and Community Health Services (DFCHS) is charged with administering the Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant (MCHBG) Program in Ohio. To properly administer the MCHBG program, ODH works collaboratively with other organizations to conduct a state-wide, comprehensive Needs Assessment (NA) every five years.

Findings from the Needs Assessment focus on:

  • Identifying State priorities to address the needs of the MCH population, and
  • Guiding the allocation of MCH Block Grant funding.
The updated fact sheets found in the four population groups below are used to assist groups of policy-makers, consumers, providers, stakeholders and other interested parties across the state in identifying the highest priority health-related needs in Ohio's MCH populations.
