The Maternal and Child health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) administers a broad range of programs services to pregnant women, mothers, infants, children and their families and children with special health care needs. The largest of the programs, the Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant, includes State Formula Block Grants, Special Projects of Regional and National Significance (SPRANS), and Community Integrated Service Systems (CISS) projects. Other vital missions include Universal Newborn Hearing Screening, Traumatic Brain Injury, Healthy Start, Sickle Cell Service Demonstrations, Family to Family Health Information Centers, Emergency Medical Services for Children, and autism.


The Bureau's inventory of maternal and child health publications (approximately 500 titles) is distributed by the National Maternal and Child Health Clearinghouse. The majority of publications are in English only; however, some are available in Spanish, Cambodian, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Laotian, Samoan, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. Most publications are available in limited quantities at no cost. A publications catalog is now available on the Bureau's Web site.
